Why Tuck?

For me, one word that encapsulates Tuck is ‘open.’ I first noticed this at the Diversity Conference I attended as a prospective student, where the entire community got involved, not just the people of color. I saw it again when a few classmates and I started Wall Street Edge, a program that helps connect incoming students with financial services firms. The support I received from all levels of the administration showed me you can take advantage of the pre-existing opportunities at Tuck or try something completely unheard of. As I’ve seen the effort pay off for classes behind me, it’s been very rewarding. Tuck has plentiful possibilities.
