You are driven by passion. We help you realize your potential.
When choosing a college, I wanted to be more than just another number or name on an attendance sheet. I wanted opportunities, and I wanted to be remembered.
I was undecided, and getting into the College of Business has shaped me into the person I am. It has helped me to grow so much in academics and the community.
Take advantage of all the opportunities on campus. Get to know your professors and classmates. Put yourself out there, I promise it will pay off!
