On the faculty: I never cease to be amazed by the warmth and encouragement of Fletcher’s faculty. Everyone that you reach out to is genuinely interested in your success and will do their best to help you.

Something that has surprised me about Fletcher: One of the most surprising aspects of Fletcher is the diversity of experiences and interests represented by the student body. No location is too far, and no topic is too obscure, when it comes to Fletcher students.
