Small College Feel
The outstanding reputation and close-knit, small college feel was very appealing to me when choosing to attend Mount Union. I seem to work well in that type of environment and would have been lost in the shuffle at a larger institution.
Access to Professors
The student-to-faculty ratio at Mount Union, as well as student access to professors, makes the University much different than other colleges. For example, during my freshman year, President Harold Kolenbrander was my mentor and very instrumental in my early development at Mount Union.
I have a lot of gratitude for both Dr. James Thoma and Dr. MaryEllen Lloyd. Both took a special interest in me and helped navigate Mount Union early during my freshman and sophomore years.
Mount Union Memories
Rollerblading to class, studying by the lakes, and Mount Union’s first NCAA DIII football national championship in 1993 in Salem, VA are among my best memories of attending Mount Union.
Life After College
My first job was as the director of global operations for the PGA Tour’s Championship Management Company.
I interned with Championship Management Company my sophomore year and continued with them part-time until graduation. I owe my good friend and fellow alum Tim Wicinski ’94 for opening that door for me. I’ll be forever grateful for his help.
I was a brother of the fraternity Sigma Alpha Epsilon.
During my time at Mount Union, I had an opportunity to experience a variety of classes and events.
