Better than Ivy League

Post placeholder image

I came across this really great story in the Washington Post. It reminds me of how disappointed I was when I didn’t get into a certain University back East that shall remain nameless (no it wasn’t Harvard, I didn’t even apply to any Boston schools). I ended going to the University of Michigan and had the best time ever. There, I got a first rate education and met some really bright/smart/educated/cultured/sophisticated people. Those four years at Michigan played a critical role in shaping who I am today.
One group of people that particularly stand out are the graduate students and professors I met while working at The Program for Research on Black Americans. So THANK YOU Dr. Robert Taylor for picking me up at the airport freshman year and offering me a job that last all four years. I couldn’t have asked for a better work study experience.
And to think, I decided to go to Michigan without even visiting the campus.
