Why did you choose Purchase?

I originally chose Purchase because it was close to home and they had a great psychology program. I stayed at Purchase because I loved it, since my first day here everyone was so nice and welcoming, I found an amazing group of friends, I ended up taking some classes I loved and Purchase just became my second home after I thought it was just going to be a place where I came to get a degree in. Just being at Purchase for a year made me grow as a person and learn how to step of my comfort zone and explore new things. So even though I choose it because it was close to home, I stayed because this slowly became home.
