What Attracted Me to CURL:
As an undeclared, first year student I wanted to explore and find out what I am interested in. I heard about CURL through a family friend, and thought it would be a good place to start. Being a new member of the CURL team, I am exposed to both the business aspect of helping managing an office, as well as the anthropological perspective of students conducting research on issues that surround our urban setting. I have also learned how to manage my time and have a better idea of what I want to accomplish in my college career.
What I Hope to Gain from CURL:
I hope to gain the following perspectives and understandings from CURL: gain a better understanding of both the business and research aspects of CURL to help mold my future interests in academia and beyond; open my eyes to the professional world in order to prepare myself for life after college; and finally, to gain access to more academic opportunities from being a part of the CURL team.
