My professors know my name and interests and are always willing to meet to discuss projects, classes, or careers. Staff go above and beyond to help students with, quite literally, anything. It’s a nice community feel at the La Follette School.

I’ve learned so much! Especially about subjects that are so useful but had always grossed me out (statistics and economics). It’s also incredibly rewarding to be immersed in a place where so much learning is happening ... definitely an encouraging environment. And there are so many opportunities and resources that allow you to do whatever you want here.
