I have found that professors are enthusiastic about engaging with students and really getting to know them.

Why did you choose Cornell and AAP?

I chose Cornell because of the multitude of opportunities the program offers. From the large range of courses to the Rome study abroad program, I found there were very few other architecture programs that would give me such diverse learning experiences. I was also attracted by the diversity of both students and faculty.

What experiences have contributed to your sense of belonging at AAP?

There is no single experience that has contributed to my sense of belonging at Cornell, but rather the small day-to-day acts of kindness. Moreover, I have found that professors are enthusiastic about engaging with students and really getting to know them.
