Learning By Doing

Fisher believes in the value of experience. When you expose yourself to new situations—from meticulously recording data in a research lab, to performing on-the-job work at an internship, to communicating with residents of a foreign country—you not only complement your classroom learning, but you learn things in ways you won’t soon forget.
