- Totally immerse yourself in the Program. Because I was wholly present, I got to engage in more than just the academics of the MAT Program. I established a supportive network with the faculty, made close friends across the disciplines, and thoroughly enjoyed what not only Bard College had to offer but the entire lovely Hudson Valley as well.
