        1985-1988, Bachelor of Arts

        Marlboro allowed me to become responsible for my actions quickly as the professors would guide you and you had to get it done from your own perspective. Writing a thesis for your undergrad is a unique experience not available at many schools and then having an outside examiner verify your understanding of what you've written about makes it that much clearer. I recommend Marlboro to anyone who is a looking for a unique experience and a great one. I would do it all over again!

        A tall tree in a large forestIt is a gift to find oneself among a small-ish, diverse, and highly capable group of people. The faculty and student body at Marlboro offer the first step onto a path of individualism and discovery. In a world where differentiation is increasingly tied to success the self-directed platform is much greater than an academic endeavor; indeed it is the roots of some very tall trees.
