The Right Choice
“Transferring to Booth University College from the larger university campus I was at was a great decision. There, I was one of 44,000 students. Here, I have small classes where my profs know my name and I get a lot of one-on-one time with them. It’s ridiculous how easy it is to communicate with my professors! They make a visible effort to reach out, and it’s been a real comfort to know that they’re there.”
