When you look back on your undergraduate experience what do you miss and what don’t you miss?

“Looking back upon my undergraduate career, I miss the experience of taking various math and statistics courses. I attended a smaller HBCU, therefore, fewer math courses were available. Although the selection available was very informative, it left me wondering what more [was out] there and could I learn more?

I also miss the opportunity to speak with a TA if needed. TAs definitely bring a different perspective, given they are closer to the students compared to the professor. Mentorship from the professors, however, and camaraderie between the students was abundant. These types of relationships allowed me to have the confidence to continue my studies and ultimately have a career in data analysis.”
