What leadership roles or volunteer experiences have been important to you during your time at Maryland?
I have had the opportunity to represent my fellow Robert H. Smith School of Business students both in the University Senate as an Undergraduate Senator and in the Student Government Association as a Legislator. I've aslo taken on the role as the Director of Shared Governance this past year in the President of the SGA's cabinet. It has been an incredibly unique experience, getting to work with all of the 800+ student groups on campus, from honors societies to Greek life. Even though government work is not something I want to pursue in the future, it definitely gave me a great perspective and built my leadership experience.
Why did you choose to attend the University of Maryland, what makes this place special to you and what is your favorite part of being a Terp?
UMD was certainly not my first, second, or even third choice when I was first applying for schools my senior year of high school. I didn't even visit until after I had received my admittance to the university.
I just celebrated my two year anniversary with UMD on the 28th of March (yes, I really do keep track)! On the 28th I visited UMD for the first time on admitted student open house day. The more I talked to the students, questioned Kristin from the Undergraduate Advising office (who is now my coworker), and walked around campus seeing all the things to love about it (I think finding out Jim Henson went here sealed the deal), the more secure I became in my decision. I went home and confirmed that night. It was the first and only school I ever visited - and became my first choice overnight.
What is your major, minor, class and graduation year?
I am double majored in Supply Chain Management and Operations Management and Business Analytics (what a mouthful)! I am currently a rising junior but I am scheduled to graduate in December 2016.
What is your Hometown?
Hagerstown, Maryland. I love being able to represent Western Maryland here at UMD.
