A piece of advice I would give to a woman interested in STEM is to stay interested. Don't let anyone deter you from what you enjoy. Be unapologetically, enthusiastic and nerdy about it. It is really dorky, but if you find something that you like that much, don't give it up because it gets a little tough sometimes. Stay with it. I promise it's really worth it.

 I think when you come on our campus and you can see yourself living and thriving in this community, especially if you apply yourself and really want to get involved. I think that's the combination that makes it different. Again, from a very large or a very small school, we're right in the middle. I really like that.

Instead of thinking in terms of ‘I,’ we think in terms of ‘we’. So progress for me would be thinking about the fabrics of people who brought something forward, and all of the people who contributed to [that] something and continue to remake it, rather than the one person's name who shows up in a history book or on a building.
