EHP was the best part of my college experience by far. This community of passionate, smart, and engaged students draws out the best in those around them. Some of my closest friends are people from other entering years at CU that I would never have interacted with if not for this program. This mixing of ages and class years brought me new ideas, and also gave me opportunities to mentor friends and give meaningful advice about navigating college, jobs, and life beyond school that have had lasting impacts on how I choose to live my life now.

EHP is not about the big events you might read about on this site, but instead the random small moments no one mentions. The acts of kindness and compassion from fellow students. The 2 am conversations. The random Wednesday evening philosophical discussion, or an impromptu dinner party because some of us feel like cooking. What makes EHP special is these moments that no one forces to happen, but bring us together as a community, a group of friends, and a family that make this program feel like home.
