Jessica Bonnano, an MBA student at Notre Dame, shared her experience with the competition 2013:
"Our team was so impressed with the entire event - from the TEDx conference, to dinner with the Newman's team, to the lovely tour, and more - everything we experienced reflected BYU's dual commitment to both the highest standards of intellectual inquiry as well as the most sincere expression of ethics and brotherly love."
