“Oswego provided me with the tools to grow and become comfortable with expressing my skills, and this has greatly helped me in preparing for after graduation. ... I remember back in high school I was terrified of speaking in front of the class. However, almost every business course involves a project and presentation. Therefore, the courses gave me the tools and experience I needed to master this skill. The ability to clearly explain yourself and display confidence is important in anything from school presentations to job interviews.”
