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.

Student & Faculty Profiles

Chris Bonomo

Chris Bonomo '18

Long Island native Chris Bonomo is a Service Scholar and a member of the men's rowing team. He was drawn to Fisher for several reasons including the size, the friendly people he met early on, the solid academic programs, and the Service Scholar Program. The beautiful campus helped him make his decision as well.

He said he has gotten to know a lot of good people really well since he started, and the small size also makes it easier for him to connect with his professors.

So far, his favorite memory was attending the football season opener. His favorite course is his Research-Based Writing class where he feels like he has a lot of freedom to explore writing topics and cover what he's interested in.

His advice to anyone thinking about a small school experience is to visit Fisher to see why it would be a perfect choice for them.
