Zhiqiao (Kate) Jiang '18 - University of Pennsylvania
"Derryfield has not only allowed me to explore my interests in math and science, but also offered me the opportunity to become a critical thinker, an art appreciator, and a philosophy lover. In addition to UPenn’s rigorous engineering program with extensive research opportunities, I chose it because I want to continue the conversations in the humanities. Penn’s liberal arts education offers me this balance, and I’m deeply indebted to Derryfield for this important realization.
I’m also grateful for the supportive and inclusive community that has helped me during my application. Mr. Barnard guided me through the process and helped me finalize the list of colleges I want to apply to. Mr. Bradley and Mr. Berk kindly wrote recommendations for me as well as offered me advice on my final college choice.”
