I came up with my dad one Fall weekend as a prospective student. It was the Sukkot holiday and the dinner was out in the Sukkah on the deck of the old Shabbos House. Raizy sat me down with some girls who (became and) are my closest friends until today. I felt so welcome, so part of it, and that’s why I chose UAlbany. It was one of the best decisions of my life.
