On collaboration and teamwork: Fletcher is unique in comparison to similar programs because of the bonds that Fletcher students build with one another. This makes collaboration and teamwork feel very natural outside of the classroom. For most of my classes, my study group partners quickly became my friends. This not only allows us to hold one another accountable and be straightforward with one another in group meetings, but makes studying much more exciting and enjoyable.

On Fletcher’s international community: Fletcher has broadened my global perspective in more ways than I could have imagined. Fletcher courses, lectures, and most importantly the students at Fletcher have in a sense, brought the world to me. In class, I am surrounded by students from all over the world.  In the hallways, I hear many different languages while walking from one class to another.  In my social life, I spend time with people that I would never have met under normal circumstances in my Washington, D.C. life. Fletcher has shown me that the world has so much to offer, and it is a privilege to be in an environment where I'm constantly gaining knowledge about global issues from a number of different perspectives.
