What do you like most about being a Hunt Scholar?

My favorite thing about being a Hunt Scholar is the connections I have made, and will make in the future. I have met some of the most amazing people because of this scholarship. Not only have I grown through encountering the renowned Tate Lecture Speakers, but staff, faculty and other students with the same goals and drive for success that I value dearly. Being a Hunt Scholar is about being part of an elite, caring family that is there to push you and help you towards success.
