ASPIRE in Action

“I took a class called Computer Networking at Tandon that was a review of how the Internet works. The capstone project at the end involved working for a hypothetical IT firm. We did things like allocate IP addresses, design subnet systems, and design virtual networks. It was really cool, and very realistic, too.”

Beyond the Books

“As a veteran, I feel strongly about giving back to the veteran community. SERV represents veterans at fair hearing trials to appeal their social services adjudications.”

The Washington Square Way

“Law school is a lot of fun. You’re learning something new every day, major concepts that show you the inner workings of society. For somebody with an intellectual curiosity, NYU Law really satisfies that.”
