"I chose MSFS because I felt that I had found a community of like-minded individuals who are committed to serving the world. The program offers students access to a unique network of local and international practitioners while also providing a campus community feel. The academic rigor and beautiful location of the university also influenced my decision. I am honored to be surrounded by such high-achieving individuals from whom I continuously learn."
