What students say

"Mike was a really great mentor for me these past four weeks of classes. Always timely and constructive in his feedback, I feel as though he has pushed me to try new things and emphasized the importance of getting inspired. Additionally, the resources he has provided me and the directions he pointed me to were always super useful. Once again, great mentor! Thank you!!"
