Yonatan Shavit ’18

Bachelor of Science in Mathematics,

As the recipient of the 2018 Marion A. Bills Scholarship, Shavit is pursuing graduate work in mathematics at Oxford University. He is enrolled in a program called an MSc. in Mathematical Sciences, a brand new program which Oxford has created for the 2018-19 year.

When I looked through the lecture-style courses offered in this degree, I came to the immediate conclusion that it would have been completely impossible for me to understand even the first day's material if UHart's Mathematics Department had not given me such amazing support. Due to the small nature of the University, I was offered the privilege of receiving direct, focused, and perceptive tutelage from almost every member of the faculty. This being accomplished through a large number of classes with under five students, an unusual number of one-on-one classes, and a great many hours of communication outside of classes. Thank you very much for all the effort you've put into helping me reach this far!
