It's hard to explain all the ways in which our faculty are more than what you think of when you think of "faculty." They're people who understand—really understand—what it means to be young and smart and hungry, to be astonished by the world, to be in love with possibility, to be willing to work until your hands ache. They are those people, only slightly less young. They work on innovative projects, they bake fabulous cupcakes, they care about your head and your heart, they listen, they laugh, they write detailed recommendations. They'll most likely be part of your life for the rest of your life.
