“Scala is unique in that following each lecture is the opportunity to dine together, and I found the informal conversation that happened while sharing a meal was just as rewarding as the lecture.” – Graham M., Princeton Theological Seminary graduate
“Scala has been a wonderful community for me this semester…I found a culturally enriching, yet friendly environment in which to tackle big issues that are often pushed aside in the academic curriculum.” – Federica Q., Princeton University graduate student
