ERG Virtual Visit Day

Monday, March 16th, 2020


“After several years of professional experience, ERG has given me a new lease on life. Because of the incredible latitude ERG gives its students to explore, I’ve had the opportunity to take classes in law, business, public policy, and data science, above and beyond the core requirements in social science, engineering, etc. These experiences have equipped me to ask and answer interesting analytical questions as a more ethical researcher. Moreover, they have enabled me to engage with the news as a more informed citizen. And the best part is that at ERG, I am just one of a community of such citizens! This department is truly special in the collaborative spirit and engagement it fosters among an exceptional group of diverse, inquisitive, kind, and FUN individuals.”  Jessica Katz, ERG graduate student
