Class of 2011, MBA
Trying to find a university that met my needs was one of the most difficult things that I faced during my high school years. I was interested in a smaller campus that offered a degree program in Computer Science with a structured academic course schedule. I found what I wanted here at TU.
One of the greatest things about TU is the opportunity to get involved at any level. During my junior year, I got involved with the Student Association. Had I not done that, I would not have had the opportunity to bring change to this campus.
Through my various positions, I have been given multiple opportunities to be in a leadership position around campus. I have served as the executive director of Information Services and Chief of Staff for External Relations for the Student Association, one of two senators for the College of Engineering and Natural Sciences, the chair of the Sustainability Committee, student representative on the Bookstore and Dining committees, and one of five undergraduate recipients of a National Science Foundation Cyber Corps Fellowship grant.
As an undergraduate, I also worked for the Office of Admissions as a student blogger. I wrote about my college experience, living opportunities, leadership experiences, and just about everything that happened on a daily basis. Everyday I am presented with challenges, decisions, and opportunities that I know are preparing me for my future.
After completing my bachelors in May of 2009, I decided to further my studies, and decided to pursue a Masters in Business Administration. I am currently on track to graduate in 2011 with my MBA.
When I look back at my decision to attend TU on both occasions, I continue to see success in my future. From attending classes, participating in extracurricular activities/organizations, lectures, seminars and focus groups, I have advanced my personal skills and ability to lead others. For all the opportunities I have been given here at TU, I am very grateful!
