Major: Business Administration

How many times have you changed your major? 0

What do you hope to do when you graduate? Right now I’m in the process of exploring my options after I graduate. I’m currently an Admissions Advisor Intern, but I also want to utilize my business knowledge and possibly pursue a career in finance.

What is a random fact about you? I am deathly allergic to kiwi! I carried around an epi-pen from the time I was 6 to the time I was 15!

What is your favorite movie(s)? “Ms. Congeniality,” “The Proposal,” “Identity Thief,” and anything with Sandra Bullock or Melissa McCarthy in it!

Why did you choose UWB? I knew I would receive a world-renowned education, in a private school setting, for a public school cost. And it’s so close to my house!

What do you like about UWB? I love how everyone, from the faculty members to the students are so incredibly friendly and supportive! I never felt helpless on campus since there are so many resources here to ensure students succeed. I also love how the majority of my classes feel more like a discussion than a lecture not only due to the small class sizes, but because the professors are very engaging and take on an interdisciplinary approach.

What surprised you about UWB? What surprises me the most is how I can walk to one class to the next, and see so many familiar faces. Also, my professors go above and beyond to make sure help is available to ensure students truly understand the material. 

What is your favorite thing to do at UWB? When I have the time, I love to cozy up in one of the chairs in the quiet reading room and read a good book!

How are you involved on the campus? I was involved in Beta Alpha Psi and held a couple of student jobs here on campus.

What advice would you give a high school student about going to college? Get involved as much as possible! Not only does it make your campus feel a lot smaller, but it helps you discover what you really enjoy. Also, try to network as much as you can! You never know how talking to a stranger for five minutes will do for your career.
