Stephen Farias ’14
As a graduate student I have access to the many cutting edge research facilities that Hopkins provides. While having all the facilities of a large university, the department is also small enough to provide a very personal setting. I have always felt welcome to approach any professor about my research and the entire faculty and staff take genuine interest in each student. The balance of the individual attention of a small department and the research opportunities of a large one is what makes this place stand out.
