Thorin Christos Schriber, 2011, United States

How I first learned about Fletcher: I first learned about Fletcher from a good friend and Fletcher alumnus from the class of ’98, who has since had an exceptionally successful career in Washington, D.C. He had only great things to say about his time at Fletcher. He of course talked about Fletcher’s dedicated faculty and the advantages of its flexible curriculum; but most of all, he talked about the lifelong friends he had made here. In fact, he organized a Fletcher brunch for me in D.C., giving me the compelling opportunity to speak with Fletcherites working in every sector.

How Fletcher has broadened my global perspective: The sense of global community at Fletcher is truly remarkable. Every day I am connected to the most pressing global challenges because I have Fletcher friends who have lived those very challenges. This makes the Fletcher experience extraordinarily dynamic—both in and out of the classroom. Mention any country, and a Fletcherite will give you an impassioned, on-the-ground perspective of their experiences living and working there. Not only that, you will more than likely get an invitation to see for yourself. For me, there is no better way to broaden my global perspective.
