Freedom of choice
On transferring to Marlboro
I started out at a big state university, which turned out to not be a good fit for me at all because it’s 10,000 kids, everyone is tracked, and you don’t have a lot of freedom of choice. I wasn’t getting what I wanted to learn from them, so after a year I decided to find an education that would fit my needs more. I actually didn’t apply anywhere else but Marlboro. I wanted to stay in Vermont, where I grew up. I looked at Bennington, I looked at the state schools, but I knew that Marlboro was the place for me and I didn't even apply anywhere else.
