Hopkins is a world-class institution that did not disappoint. I absolutely loved my time at Hopkins. I received a very rigorous education with small classes, accessible professors, and engaged classmates. My classmates were extremely talented, engaged, smart, well-rounded individuals that became lifelong friends. Even with the academic rigor, I still had a lot of fun. I am very thankful for my time at Hopkins and am a proud alum!
