What Our Graduates Say

"Liggett taught me that I was a leader and taught me to embrace that part of my identity. It taught me that my life should not be 100 percent academic. If Liggett hadn't taught me that, I think I would've spent my freshman year in my dorm room studying. Instead I immediately joined a choir and two clubs. I am now part of the specialty staff in the dorms and am on the executive board of my choir. Without Liggett, it would have taken me a long time to realize my potential as a leader."

"At The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania, I invited a professor for lunch because she is a guru in the non-profit world and I wanted to learn more about her work. Because of the Liggett culture, I had the confidence to invite her to lunch and have an academic conversation. It is what I did for the past four years at Liggett."
