Schreyer Scholar Anna Shamory

Through Schreyer, I was able to gain not only academic validation but also an opportunity to study abroad in Israel last summer, at an archaeological dig. The field experience and cultural immersion allowed me to take Schreyer abroad — their values of leadership and self-improvement were right there with me, every day.
