Student Testimonials

Student Testimonial _ Mckenzie Diep

Mckenzie Diep, Junior majoring in Urban Studies & Economics with a minor in Geospatial Information Science and Technology.

IIS has significantly impacted my academic journey for a few reasons. One is that it's been sort of a constant place, since I discovered it last fall. IIS has served as a place to find interesting opportunities and be motivated to do good work. You are also able to connect with speakers and in a sense network with people on topics that you are interested in.
