Thriving in community

"Attending the Hamilton Lugar School was a no-brainer for me. I explored similar programs at universities with prestigious international studies programs, but they lacked what I felt HLS had: an experience to make my own. From my first step into the Global and International Studies Building as a prospective student, I knew that at HLS, my journey would be mine to write."
