Why I Chose Gerstacker: I had a good feeling that the small, close and personable environment would be very vital to my success as a business student. I knew I wanted to do something with accounting and Gerstacker offered so many opportunities to network and really get to know some of the best firms around! With the requirement to do 2 internships, I knew I would be graduating with not only a great education, but also awesome experience in the business world.
My Favorite Part of My First Year: I would definitely have to say that my favorite part about being at college is the independence. It was a good feeling to be able to set my own schedule, and it was an even better feeling when I actually began to grasp the idea of time management and I started to follow it!
Advice to Prospective Students: My advice would be to make sure that you have fun your first year and make some good friends, but still stay focused and work hard, because when things don't work out, you will need your friends there to cheer you up. Just make sure that you are doing what makes you happy, and not something that you think you will regret the next day or the day after that.
