Why did you choose Viterbo University?
I chose Viterbo University because it is a small campus, and I like that you have more one on one with the professors. The professors also are very helpful and care for each student as if they have known them their whole life. Viterbo University also stood out because of the marketing program.
How has financial aid impacted your college experience?
I think it has impacted my college experience because it makes me think of how grateful I am to be where I am and to be able to create new memories and friends, as well as to increase my knowledge and further my education. I came to Viterbo because of the marketing program, and I am glad to have received the help I have.
What will a college degree mean to you?
A college degree is more than just a piece of paper, but rather something to show your hard work and perseverance into your dream and having made it a reality. A college degree will help me get the job I’ve always wanted.
Have you learned something during college you didn’t expect?
Being in college I have definitely stepped outside my comfort zone. I would not have expected to have a college campus feel more like a home and one big family. It has helped me feel like I can make a difference and succeed at anything I want too.
What are your plans after graduation?
After I graduate from Viterbo, I hope to have a job as a marketing manager or marketing specialist with the Milwaukee Bucks, Milwaukee Brewers, or the Green Bay Packers.
