What has been your favorite honors course so far and why?

The “Practicum 1: Introduction to Corporate Citizenship” course has been my favorite honors course so far because we tackle important topics regarding corporate social responsibility. It’s interesting to learn about how corporations can become socially responsible by implementing sustainable initiatives and practices.

What has been the most impactful professional development event that you’ve participated in through Business Honors Program?

The most impactful professional development event that I’ve participated in through the Business Honors Program has been the annual mock interviews event. After the event, I connected with one of my interviewers via LinkedIn, and was asked to meet with them in-person later that week. After the meeting, I was offered the opportunity to intern for their company.

How would you describe the community of the Business Honors Program?

The business honors program is a diverse community that fosters success, creates great bonds, encourages teamwork, and cultivates a fast-paced environment that makes students strive to be the best version of themselves.
