  • I am First-Generation: Kaitlynn Lilly

    "I would also tell students to not count themselves out. You miss 100% of the shots you don't take and there is a reason you got into college in the first place. You are capable of anything you may put your mind to, even if no one before you has done it" - Kaitlynn Lilly (M.S. Applied Mathematics, 2023), Ph.D. Applied Mathematics, 2027
