Why Durham: Ever since I started Undergrad, I have been moving all across the country for school. After I finished my Masters degree, I really wanted to settle down somewhere that was new, but still reminded me of home. When I first visited Durham, I felt that cozy, Midwest sensation that I had not experienced in a long time. Durham is a constantly growing, beautiful city that made me feel at home.
