"My professors had great lecture classes. I got to dive into the behind-the-scenes history of the United States, European, non-western and local history. It was neat to approach the subject from so many different angles. Professors in the history department have a chance to really get to know their students. They were able to talk to me about personal interests of mine and really made it their mission to help me succeed"
