JonesLiz Jones-Dilworth (CAS’02): “When I think about BU, I think of Core first. What has stuck with me for 15 years is my phenomenal professors, dear friendships, and of course, the books. My experience of Core was awakening and inspiring and so much fun — I want to help ensure that it continues to thrive and new generations of students get to have the experiences that I did.”
