What do you love about Allen? So many things! I love the spirit and vigor of Allen, and I think that we collectively embrace and embody a “can-do” attitude, and strive to foster that in our students. Whether it’s faculty members going on the trapeze (including myself!) to students finding unique ways to give back to the community, we encourage and support one another’s efforts to experience life and learning at their very best.
