How did the major prepare you for your career?

Economics transformed the way I looked at data and decision making. Today, "big data" drives decision making for all aspects of business. Economics allows you to crunch numbers and report trends and be the person who tells the story and influence/make decisions based on those numbers. With this ability, you will be a valuable asset to your organization.

What did you find most valuable at CSB/SJU?

CSB/SJU is the place where I learned the importance of balance in my life. I enjoyed the challenge of school, socializing with classmates, being a part of a faith based community, and participating in athletics. At times, one aspect would outweigh the others; however, in the end, they balanced and it gave me the full college experience.
