 In hindsight, the help that the faculty of the NES department offered me continues to impress me, especially as I watched some of my peers struggle for access to their advisors in other departments. The doors of the NES professors' offices were always open and they each made an effort to get to know me personally, even those with whom I never took a class. I am very grateful for all of their help, guidance and inspiration.
