“Staying on campus was the perfect option for my Institute experience: it was close to our class buildings and public transit; was comfortable and convenient; and perhaps most importantly, allowed for me to meet and spend genuine time with my peers, both from my class and others. The greatest benefit I’ve found in Institute is the opportunity to build a network of experts who are grappling with the same challenges and opportunities I am -resources I can turn to in my future endeavors. Living on campus ensured that I was able to maximize that benefit and come away each year with new peers and great friends. It’ll certainly be my choice for my final two years at Institute.”
