He took on a position as one of our Peer Mentors, helping out first-year students, as well as our entire program. Galen is an incredibly hard-worker, and his grades reflect that. Congratulations, Galen!” - Daryl T. Saladar</p><p> “It has been an absolute pleasure to work with Galen. Galen’s gifts go beyond being a witty and meticulous composer of electronic music and an amazingly bright student who grasps everything and runs with it. He brings a positive and supportive spirit to the classroom every single day. He is always ready to share enthusiastic reflections on a peer’s work—the sense of trust in the classroom community rises considerably in his presence. Galen, it has been a true joy to work with you—thank you. You will undoubtedly do great things. Congratulations!” - Yvonne Wu</p></em><div class="m-3 clearfix"><a href="/commencement/senior-profiles/index.php" class="d-inline-block pull-right"><i class="fa fa-refresh fa-2x"/></a></div></div></div></div>
