Favorite Hopkins Memory Making some of the most lasting friendships I will ever have in my life. Just kidding — all-nighters in MSE studying for Econometrics exams!

What do you miss most about being a Hopkins student? The ability to create my own schedule and living in the same square mile as all of my closest friends. Now that we’ve graduated, they live all over the world and I don’t get to see them nearly as often as every day in the library.

Knowing what you know now, what would you want to tell your pre-college self? Relax! There’s plenty of time to stress out once you get a job in the real world.
