Choosing Mount Union
Growing up in Alliance, I was always familiar with Mount Union. I chose to transfer to Mount Union because of the great blend of academic and athletic excellence. A big reason why I transferred to Mount was because of the football program. I’ve always said that people make the place, and Mount Union has a super welcoming campus community. I would tell high schoolers who are looking to go to college to go where they feel wanted. Finding the people that are there to support you and believe in what you are capable of will take you where you want to be.
Experiences and Opportunities
I picked political science as my major because I have always had an interest in politics and the government system. The Integrative Core has given me the opportunity to become more well-rounded and explore different disciplines. This is an experience that students at larger schools will miss out on. Dr. Kadlecek in the sport business department pushed me to investigate sales when I took his sport sales class. This led me to a sales internship and career track in sales.
After the sales internship that I got through Mount Union, I decided my career goal was to become a leader in sales and work with young professionals to develop them for success in their future careers. Mount Union has prepared me to be a leader. Though I will have to do the work myself to reach my goals, Mount Union has prepared me to do so.
