Kristoffer Strauss“The faculty of the Keck Science Department at Scripps were wonderful. They made themselves available at regular office hours and review sessions every week. I always felt like I had the resources available to me that I needed to succeed while at Scripps, and a large part of that was due to the support provided by the faculty throughout the year.”
