“I think I’m the proudest of how much growth we’ve had. By expanding, we got to get on so many different diverse campuses. And we get to meet so many different administrators in the business of student housing, and that gives you the opportunity to provide jobs for folks, which gave me all the interactions I’ve had with the incredible employees we’ve had through the years.” — Sandy Hill
