MUM was fun. It sounds trite, but it was such an important aspect of my time at the university. It was so joyful to be around such a diverse group of students and have such a good time.
It was a particularly important experience for me to be so accepted and to find friends so quickly when I started at MUM. The quality of my education was excellent, but the high quality of my interactions and the happiness I experienced at MUM were perhaps more important than the “book learning.”
I am grateful I was able to have both top-notch classes and professors, but also an entire school of top-notch friendships (including my husband!) that I still have 10 years later.
