    Q. Why did you choose to attend Dean College?

    A. I was impressed by the business program and by the professors I met during orientation, especially Dr. Shaw and Dr. Cuomo. I like that Dean has small class sizes which was what I was looking for in a college.

    Q. Do you work on campus, participate in any particular events, activities, athletics, clubs, or organizations?

    A. I am a business student ambassador, a member of the Investment Club and a summer intern in the Marketing Department.

    Q. What do you like best about Dean?

    A. I enjoy attending the Leadership Institution events and listening to guest speakers. I have heard from some interesting people, including Robert Kraft, Bert Jacobs and Bianca de la Garza, about their personal and professional lives.

    Q. What are your plans after Dean?

    A. To open my own business and become an entrepreneur.

    Q. What is your favorite course at Dean?

    A. The entrepreneurship course has inspired me. Professor Adams helped me understand the possibility of owning my own business someday.

    Q. How has Dean prepared you for the future?

    A. Dean has helped me to speak up. When Bianca de la Garza visited campus for the DLI event, I chose to ask a question during her presentation in front of a crowd of nearly 400 people. Instead of shying away from the moment, I spoke up and asked her about her business. Dean has really prepared me to ask questions to better understand the business world.
