My academic experience at Southwestern--where I was challenged not just to write, but also to back up my writing with solid research and analysis--made my experience at Harvard law School a lot less stressful. I am grateful to Southwestern for the opportunity to have been a Dixon Scholar... The University [was] supportive and interested in my growth both as a student and as a person. Professionally, it made my decision to attend Harvard law School one of 'What do I want to do?' Rather than 'What can I afford to do?'"

"I was smart and curious but painfully shy in college. I was terrified to speak in class but Dr. Selbin pushed me, convincing me that I had something important to say and needed to say it. Today, giving speeches or briefings is, I believe, one of my best professional skills. Southwestern taught me how to think critically about issues and how to challenge myself intellectually." These skills have served Daly well in her career as a terrorism and international policy analyst, first with the CIA and now with Rand Corporation."
