Our students don’t wait until graduation to start leaving their mark on the world. They direct plays in New York City, publish real scientific research and study major health issues from inside some of the world’s most at-risk regions. They work as analytical chemists, are recognized with awards for their original poetry, and start their own businesses right here on campus. Students have every opportunity to engage their passion thanks to a powerful alumni network, deep internship pool, interdisciplinary projects and volunteer opportunities.
