Michael Lewis ’03

I became a CSS major, and joining the College of Social Studies was definitely a defining moment. I put that in my category of, "I always like being surrounded by people I feel are a lot smarter than me," because it gives me something to kind of strive for. I definitely felt like—I'd be in the room with my classmates, and I'm like, "Boy, these people are really really smart. Let me not say anything stupid."

So it really gave me a lot to challenge myself.
