What is your favorite DePaul memory?

My top two favorite DePaul memories are (1) developing really positive friendships with other students in my math courses and coordinating study sessions that made studying more enjoyable and less stressful, and (2) participating in summer research with Dr. Tenner and Dr. Petersen. These two professors broadened my view of what doing mathematics actually means, and they've completely influenced my math education philosophy.
