What stood out to you in selecting to attend the M.S. in Commerce Program?

The ability to learn tangible skills that combined with my liberal arts degree would create a truly valuable byproduct.

What are you looking forward to most in the Program?

I'm looking forward to connecting with students with different backgrounds from myself. Getting to know them better will not only allow me to build my own story, but also make me a more well-rounded person, which I believe is vital in today's ever-changing and diversifying world.

What clubs and organizations were you involved with during your time in undergrad?

Madison House, Real Estate Club, St. Anthony Hall (fraternity and literary society)

What book are you currently reading?

Empire of the Summer Moon by S.C. Gwynne

If you could go on a cross-country road trip with a famous person, living or dead, who would it be?

Either Shaq or Jerry Garcia because I believe both would offer such an interesting perspective on life and finding happiness regardless of economic standing.
