Experience Academic Excellence


The classes I am taking in WP’s Cotsakos College of Business are interesting, challenging and fun. The feedback I receive from my professors, partnered with innovative technology like the sales lab, is preparing me to excel in my career. I was the youngest student in the top four of last year’s Russ Berrie Institute for Professional Sales Triathlon, and I was one of 60 first-generation college students selected for a fellowship with America Needs You, a two-year career development and leadership training program.
