I enjoyed the significant amount of opportunities that Albion presented me with, such as events, speakers and networking opportunities. Meeting with alumni and firm representatives allowed me to grow within my major as well as an individual. I was active with the VITA program and the Accounting Society.
The greatest part about the Economics and Management Department, and by extension, Albion as well, is that nothing is handed to you. Everything that I have come to learn, and the successes I have had, are a product of the tools that Albion afforded me and my performance with those instruments.
… was the best decision I could have made for myself. I wouldn’t trade a day anywhere for the experiences I’ve had and lessons I’ve learned from Albion’s faculty, staff and student population.
Make connections with alumni. They were once in your shoes and, more likely than not, have had the same exact or similar experiences as you. Plus, don’t hesitate to reach out; you never know what opportunities you might find.
