Senior Jackson Streit poses for a photo at Duke University while attending its student orientation. Streit is in the class of 26 for Duke University and intends to pursue a major in public policy with the end goal of becoming a lawyer helping foster children. “I want to be a lawyer, and public policy is a great opening into that. What those kids go through is very tragic, and there’s no clearer path for me than to do what I can to right that. Duke is obviously renowned for its education, but I think what sets it apart in my opinion from other higher-end schools is that it also has this culture of teamwork. Duke’s sports are very well known there, and other Ivy Leagues don’t quite have that same culture.  I’m not just paying for education, but for the kind of growth that I can get as a person from being in that sort of ecosystem.”
