Philippe Bartholin, 2015, USA/France

On the faculty: I have been very impressed with the faculty at the Fletcher School. Professors are very welcoming, open and accessible. You truly feel that they want to be here teaching Fletcher students. I think the faculty to student relationship at the Fletcher School is one of the school's most notable strengths.

How Fletcher has broadened my global perspective: Fletcher continues to broaden my global perspective on a daily basis. The diversity of the school is remarkable and it feels so natural. I feel like I can walk up to anyone at any given moment and converse on any topic, from trivial to serious. This is hugely important because it lets you grow in a very natural way and allows you to become exposed to aspects of the surrounding students you would not even have imagined.
