Career goal

“After graduating, I hope to land a steady career in my degree field and work my way up to management.”

How have Carthage faculty had an impact on your life or Carthage career?

Professor Victoria Montanaro has impacted my Carthage career because she helped me realize that accounting is something I really enjoy and want to continue studying. Professor Alex Lau also has impacted my Carthage career in that he showed me how dealing with lots of numbers can be fun and give a lot of information about the condition of a company.”

Favorite class

“My favorite classes have been Business Statistics and Business Analytics with Professor Tom Groleau, not only because of the awesome grading scale, but also for all of the great Excel skills I have learned and developed, which I continually use while working internships.”

Toughest class

“The toughest classes for me so far were both Western Heritage classes because instead of thinking logistically with structure, I needed to use my creative side to succeed.”

Favorite moments and memories at Carthage

“Some of my favorite Carthage moments come from being on the men’s soccer team and living with all of my friends on Denhart’s 4th floor.”

Favorite spot on campus

“My favorite spot on campus has to be the basement of the Hedberg Library because it is a quiet place to get all of my work done early.”

Biggest surprise so far

“The biggest surprise so far has been how helpful the professors are here and how they always go the extra step to help their students.”

What would your 8-year-old self think of you now?

“My 8-year-old self would think that my current studies suit me perfectly because I have always been good with numbers and had an interest in business and entrepreneurship.”

Why should other students consider your major? What advice do you have for them?

“I would tell other students who are considering my major that it is really important to reach out to professors whenever you don’t understand something because they will definitely help you.”

Why Carthage?

“I chose Carthage because learning is much easier when you are engaged with your peers and instructor.”
