Why did you choose Syracuse University?
In undergrad, I had a couple of professors who received the PhDs from Syracuse University, so I was familiar with the framework and culture of CFE. I was particularly drawn toward the interdisciplinary, flexible, yet rigorous scholarship in the department. During my initial visit, I felt like this was the right place for me, so I came!
