With graduation fast approaching, we’re taking the month of April to honor our M&T Class of 2015 with a few Senior Spotlights. This installment comes to us from Amy Tang about her love for the M&T family.
During my Penn admissions interview four years ago – What! Where did the time go? – my interviewer, an M&T Program alumnus, told me a story about how he and a group of friends stayed up all night to hash out an idea they came up with the previous day. One of my favorite parts of my college experience is well captured by his story. Here in this community, I’ve made friends who I can brainstorm start-up ideas with, late night struggle through problem sets with, and even develop a new class scheduling software for the Penn administration.
But all work and no play make M&Ts dull…people. More than even just having a go-to community to collaborate with, between my church and M&T family, I’ve found a group of people to do life with. Countless memories have been made during Chinatown runs to fulfill cravings at strange hours and weekly gatherings in the M&T office to watch Scandal on Thursday evenings. I feel blessed to have had such good times with such great people.
