Advertising Manager reflects on Washburn experience

Elisa Gayle / Washburn Review

Washburn has been my home for the past five years, and I am happy to report it was an amazing experience. I believe Washburn students don’t realize how lucky they are to be at a school that offers them so many life-changing opportunities. As a double major in Actuarial Science and Business Finance, one would expect me to be buried in books, but I have been involved in a lot of different organizations, worked on campus, networked through conferences and built great relationships with my professors.

I’ll admit not every class had the best professors, but when I had a great professor, they became a mentor and friend.

In particular I would like to thank: Mike Mosier for getting me excited about statistics, Azyz Sharafy and Donna Lalonde for taking an interest in me and my wellbeing and Gary Baker and Rob Weigand for opening my eyes to my future in finance.

My recommendation to those of you who aren’t finished with this chapter of your lives would be to do everything you can, while you can. As cliché as it sounds, these years do pass by quickly, so don’t miss your chance to get involved!
