Edwards on the Higher Education Program:
"The Higher Education Program at William and Mary is a triumph of quality over quantity. The streamlined curriculum, small faculty cadre, and selective student cohorts create a unique opportunity for focused learning, meaningful interaction, and strong relationships. I didn't want to leave (and the faculty probably thought I never would). I graduated with a better understanding of the macro and the micro - with the ability to see simultaneously both the forest and the trees - and to fly."
