From day one at La Salle, I had been welcomed with a sense of community. By being in the University Honors Program, I was able to build great friendships with students across all different majors, not just in business. In regard to the business school, I cannot thank the administration enough for giving me the tools to excel not only in the classroom, but in real world scenarios as well. Each of the professors in the business school, specifically the accounting department, were always willing to help you better understand concepts in the classroom. They’d even check in to make sure that you had a job lined up for after graduation and that you were covered.
Through the Business Scholars program, I was able to work for my favorite sports organization, the Philadelphia Eagles, and learn what business in sports was like. I was fortunate enough to be interning during the year of the Super Bowl and was able to actually attend the Super Bowl in Minneapolis and get a Super Bowl ring. This was the experience of a lifetime and something I could not have been experienced in the first place had it not been for the Business Scholars Program. In addition, I am also in the Four-Year BS/MBA program at La Salle and this program will allow me to get my master’s degree in four years, which will help to reduce the cost of graduate school as well as allow me to get 150 credits required to sit for the CPA.
Over the course of the summer, I will be planning to sit for my CPA before I begin my job with PwC in the fall. I will be going into their Core Assurance practice.
