If you put her life at Haas on a spreadsheet, Millicent Anglin admits that she was running a deficit in the "free time" column. But that was just fine with her. When she wasn't immersed in coursework and activities related to her real estate program studies, Anglin could be found working with several student-run organizations. "Being on the UT Austin Real Estate Challenge team was a great way to meet people and an opportunity to wrestle with a practical problem in the area that interests me. It was a nice complement to the academic frameworks we discussed in first year classes," she says.
In addition to being a Toigo Fellow, Anglin was co-president of the Black Business Students Association and focused her extracurricular efforts on giving back to the Haas community, particularly in the area of diversity. "I wanted to increase the number of students at Haas from diverse backgrounds and was active in a variety of outreach events including the Diversity Conference and the Admit Weekends. These were great opportunities to engage people and use my time in ways that were most important to me and had the most impact on the school."
Haas and its resources have already had a direct impact on Anglin. She credits the Career Center, through on campus interviews and the Accelerated Careers in Real Estate program, for expanding her exposure to Bay Area real estate professionals. The Berkeley Real Estate Club and the San Francisco chapter of the Urban Land Institute also "opened doors and shined a light on current trends and challenges in the real estate industry."
