The faculty at USI are willing to go above and beyond to ensure that their students succeed.

I think the work that I'm most proud of and I was most passionate about was probably this summer. I went to Lexington, Kentucky, and I was fortunate enough to work with Dr. Delaney. Not only did I gain a lot of experience within the lab, but I also got to know Dr. Delaney really well.

During the summer, I worked in an organizing and planning project for the international office. And basically, we received 10 students from Panama who hadn't been here before. And they were here to learn English. And that was really such a great experience, because it really put me inside of the field that I'm studying.

I think the hands-on experience and really the "getting to know your professor" part is something that a lot of people don't think is possible in college when it definitely is here at USI.

My favorite thing about USI is definitely the community, the staff, the students. All the faculty members are so nice, and they really help you. They are great.
