Five Questions with a student...


1. What is your academic rundown? 
I am currently a senior majoring in Management with a Human Capital focus.

2. What are you involved in at Penn State, and how do these activities compliment your Management coursework? 
In the past I was involved in Nittany Consulting Group, Smeal Human Capital Student Consultants, and currently involved in Ascend. These activities complement my management coursework because what I have learned in class through theory and lecture, I applied these concepts in my activities. For example, when I was learning about performance management, I was able to apply that as an executive board leader when mid-semester peer reviews came up in Ascend.

3. What do you wish you knew earlier in your academic career, that you know now? 
I wish I had known, especially as a freshman, how important it is to be involved from the beginning. I had increased my involvement and dedication to organizations when I was a second-semester freshman, but I wish I had started from day one.

4. What are your plans after graduating from Penn State? 
My plans after graduation are to start working a full-time job within the field of human capital.

5. What do you enjoy doing in your free time? 
I enjoy crocheting and knitting especially since I'm home all the time. I've made a lot of coasters, sweater vests, and scarves this past year. I also love going outside for walks and hikes. Now that the weather is nice again, I'm excited to explore the outdoors.
