Why did you choose F&M? I admire F&M's mission to create a community of effective leaders. Through its first-year seminars, F&M guides students into lives of intellectual curiosity. By incorporating a non-western cultures requirement into its curriculum, F&M fosters a community of global citizens, expanding our sense of civic responsibility beyond the campus. As an interdisciplinary studies advocate, I've seen no other college that could fulfill my thirst for knowledge and desire for personal growth.
