What made you choose to attend Georgia Tech?
I chose to attend Georgia Tech because when I visited, I loved the environment of people. It was clear to me that everyone was hardworking, down-to-earth, and talented in so many ways. I also knew I wanted to be a business major, and Scheller is ranked the No. 1 best undergraduate business school in Georgia and No. 11 in the country according to Poets & Quants for Undergrads 2017.
What do you enjoy about your major?
First, Scheller is such a great environment. All the students are so talented, involved, and motivated. The environment is encouraging but challenging, which helps to prepare students for future jobs.
I also love that business majors are required to take the introductory classes for each concentration. This provides students with a strong knowledge of the different aspects of business, which is vital for success. Also, in taking various types of business classes, I will have a better idea of what I want to do in my career.
Lastly, the professors and advisors are amazing. They are very approachable and welcoming to all students and try to help us succeed.
What organizations are you involved with on campus?
I am the sophomore advisor for FreShGA – a freshman leadership organization that focuses on developing the leadership skills of a group of first-year students, fostering friendships, and creating memories that last well beyond your first year. I am also a member of the Society of Women in Business and the Catholic Student Organization.
What do you like about Atlanta?
I love that there is a good mix of city and nature. I love walking around Piedmont Park or doing outdoor activities, but I also love that there are a lot of restaurants, concerts, and different options that you don't have in a smaller town.
