Commenting on the event with Gita Patel, one student said
"It was a great opportunity to think about how to use our experience here, not just 'how to get a job'" 
and about the event with Loyd Grossman, one staff member said
'it was so valuable to have this open forum to hear about students' experiences and hear about students having a very positive experience at LSE'
