 Have you participated in any internships or overseas study programs?  If yes, where and when? I am currently an intern at Northwestern Mutual and a young fully certified Financial Representative.

How has your internship or study abroad experience enhanced your education? It has given me the experience of client interaction in addition to how to be part of a financial planning team. This insight has drastically effected my own personal ability to organize finances in addition to building my own successful enterprise at a young age.

What activities are you involved with at Oswego? I am a Resident Assistant for Seneca Hall. I am also involved in the Student Advisory Council, Student Association Volunteer Ambulance Corps., Phi Beta Lambda, and Club Rugby.  

Why did you choose Oswego? I choose Oswego because the campus and student life seemed to be a perfect fit for me. The campus here looks incredible because of its multitude of new buildings being right on the coast of Lake Ontario. Academically the School of Business has all of the accreditations that will make my degree sought after by employers. Finally Oswego is the perfect sized school for me because it offers so many out of the classroom opportunities that allow me to get involved and help build an impressive resume.  

What is the best thing about your major? The professors make my major fun. They use their real world knowledge when educating which allows the class to feel less rigid and is a better median for learning.  

Generally speaking, what impact has the Oswego faculty had on you? They have helped me grow professionally, mentally, and pick up more general life knowledge.  

Who's your favorite professor and why?
Dr. Molinari is my favorite professor because of his ability to be intelligent, to the point, and fun. His class projects test team work abilities and marketing knowledge making his classes very memorable.
