How did you hear about SJC?
Through a mailing I received about Catholic colleges.
Did you receive financial aid and if so, what kind?
I would not have been able to attend Saint Joseph's College if not for my Honors Scholarship and grants.
Why did you choose SJC?
I really enjoyed the small size and the atmosphere of SJC. I was able to be a part of the Dance team here, something I knew would not be possible at a large school. I also liked the idea of trying something new.
How do you feel about the Core Program?
The Core Program really focuses on educating you as an individual and in a way that will impact you even outside of your career. It is not until the upper Cores that you really start to understand the importance of them and how they relate to your everyday situations. Having discussions of various topics with people of all backgrounds is a great way to learn, debate and grow, and in a manner that is respectful to all opinions.
Do you feel that Core has helped you in your other classes within your major? How do you think Core will help you after graduation?
The Core values are implemented in all aspects of careers and therefore even Business classes. Ideas and knowledge from Core have appeared in many of my classes; mainly, the idea of integrity and respecting humanity on all levels.
Tell us about your internship and what are your plans for the future?
I had an internship with 1st Source Asset Advisors in downtown Rensselaer. It is an investment branch of 1st Source Bank. I was able to sit in on a couple of client meetings, created and organized spreadsheets of referrals and potential clients, filed, updated client accounts, and learned how to open new client accounts.
I am hoping that the internship will help me in my knowledge and experience within the financial industry and allow me to enter into a similar field after graduation. I am open to any opportunity.
