Alumni
Business Management

“ There is a lot to choose from, but I would say I have two memories that stand out. The first would be with my baseball teammates during the season. That was a lot of fun and something I definitely miss. Secondly, I would say being in Prof. Scout's classes. He always had a way to make his classes fun and insightful, and those lessons I still carry with me today. ”
How has Washington College contributed to the person you are? 
Washington College has had a huge impact on the person I am today. Being a name in the classroom (as opposed to a number) allows you to form a personal connection with your professors but also pushes you to achieve your potential. It expanded my horizons and challenged me to earn my double major in business management and economics. I've also made many lifelong friends who have helped me become the person I am today, and on whom I will continue to rely in my future personal and professional life.
If you were a Washington College student today, what would you be sure to pursue or take advantage of? 
If I were a student today, I would do a lot of the same things I did while I was enrolled, but there are a few things I would do differently. I would do a study-abroad program. I've heard great stories from many friends and alumni who took advantage of this, and I feel that was a missed opportunity for me. I would also get more involved with the Career Center early on, to help find internship opportunities and jump-start my career after graduating from WAC. Washington College offers so much more than classes, and it's important to find other ways to get involved.
