I have learned as much in the dining halls here as I have in my classes. The brilliance and diversity of students has pushed me to think about things in a completely different perspective and to have an open mind. I think that experience is really unique to this University."

Samarth has interned for the Council of Economic Advisors, The White House and is also a 2017 Truman Scholar. On campus, he is a captain of the Harvard College Running Club, a representative on student government, and the director of an after-school basketball program for local youth.
