I’ve been to Homecoming many times since graduating. My wife and I always attend the Schooler Lecture, too, and I’ve come back to campus many times to speak to classes. I very much enjoy staying connected and visiting campus.

MY EXCEPTIONAL STORY

A Good Decision
I actually transferred to Mount Union at the start of my sophomore year to be closer to home. It turned out to be one of the best decisions I have ever made.

Favorite Professor
Dr. Patricia Matthews, professor for economics, accounting and business administration, was my favorite professor. I always had to be prepared, and that is perhaps one of the best lessons in life.

Mount Union Memories
My favorite memories were playing cards in Cunningham Hall, trips to the Stagg Bowl and all the friends and connections I made.

Starting a Career
I worked as a teller at FirstMerit all through college and stayed on as a commercial credit analyst upon graduation.

Helpful Activities
Along with being in Student Senate, I was a resident assistant and the track house MVP.

Dormitory Living
I first lived in the King guest house, then I was a resident assistant on the second floor of McCready and finally I moved to the track house.

Lifelong Friends
I absolutely still keep in touch with the friends I made while at Mount Union.

Proud Graduate
I’ve been to Homecoming many times since graduating. My wife and I always attend the Schooler Lecture, too, and I’ve come back to campus many times to speak to classes. I very much enjoy staying connected and visiting campus.

Future Goal
In the future, I’d like to leave my patch of the world a little better than how I found it.

To The Top!
