“Hobart and William Smith Colleges fosters an environment that allows me to balance a rigorous academic career with the opportunity to explore my passion for servant leadership through various extracurricular endeavors. The Colleges' collaborative community encourages this contagious curiosity for exploring global issues through diverse lens, and unites faculty, staff, students, and the Geneva community in the drive to instigate change. I was confident that, in choosing to attend HWS, I would have the opportunity to take my academic pursuits to the next level, develop meaningful relationships with my professors and peers, and mold myself into a compassionate leader, ready to shape a changing world.”
