Most Memorable Experience at Tech
I’ll never forget my semester taking Scenario Writing and Path Gaming (INTA 4014) with Dr. Salomone and Dr. Jordan. It was undoubtedly my favorite class of undergrad. Never before can I remember a three-hour block of time going by as quickly as it did every Wednesday. The class challenged me to take what I had learned in previous courses and apply it to a simulation. From understanding the dangers of organizational seams to positioning a country for maximum political success, the professors and my classmates made the course an incredible experience.
Would I Study International Affairs Again?
There’s no doubt I would study International Affairs given the chance to do it all over again. Although my post-graduate plans do not involve diplomacy or politics, the lessons I have learned in INTA transcend those disciplines. To understand international affairs is to understand human behavior — how pride, ambition and fear govern the behavior of institutions. That understanding will serve me well regardless of where my career leads me.
What Surprised me About the Program
I was happily surprised by how accessible my professors were. Many are renowned experts in their fields and all bear considerable research responsibilities, but any time I wanted clarification an assignment, help with research or just a sounding board, they were there for me. In particular, Dr. Jordan, Dr. Whitlark and Dr. Lin were incredibly helpful.
