  • "I got to use all of my disciplines--who knew there was so much science involved in public policy--and art and history and english, too!  City 2.0 is like a course in real life."   --Kristen,  '16

  • "I feel like I could land in any challenging situation and work with others to figure it out." --Kurt , '15
