"The thing that really stood out for me in the PRJ department was the faculty. They weren't just professors teaching -- they were mentors, friends, confidants, and when they needed to be, my parents away from home." "The thing that really stood out for me in the PRJ department was the faculty. They weren't just professors teaching -- they were mentors, friends, confidants, and when they needed to be, my parents away from home. The program was like a family -- from its patriarch Raymond Simon all the way down to the freshman on his first day of classes. I felt welcome and important from the start, but was encouraged and expected to thrive."
