La Salle became my dream school because it offered challenges and opportunities that the first university I attended did not. Because of the small class sizes, I knew that I would no longer be one of 350 students in a lecture hall where not even the teaching assistants knew my name. I also wanted an arena in which I would have the opportunity to become a leader and make a difference.
I found staff members who supported and encouraged my lofty goals; friends who helped me grow into myself; and professors who shared my enthusiasm and indulged my tendency to stray from the conventional. In short, I was pleasantly surprised to find a family in the Lasallian community.
