The amazing classes taught by brilliant professors gave me the knowledge needed to step into a full-time role at a company. Furthermore, the fact that the college was in NYC made me independent, courageous, and open-minded. Being an RA (Resident Advisor) developed my communication, organization, and prioritization skills, which are crucial to my current role.
