Michelle Moreno had never seen anything quite as magnificent as the Stacks — a sort of “library within a library,” as she remembers it.

“My undergrad degree was under Independent Plans of Study. I had access to the Stacks and studied economics and French," says Dresner Partners' managing director.

"The library contained several economic texts in French that I read and utilized in my studies and research. It was a wonderful place — and huge. I relished it.

“Off-campus, I will always remember Treno’s, which is where I was introduced to my husband. It was a Spanish-speaking happy hour that enabled conversation in Spanish to augment the learnings from class.

"It will always be my favorite memory.”
