Why I chose my major

After attending the inaugural Diversity & Inclusion Financial Planning Symposium I realized this was the path I wanted to take. This event allowed me to understand there is a place for my love of finance and financial literacy (something I credit my mom and dad for) to assist others through their financial matters to help them develop and achieve their financial goals. Not only was this event helpful with identifying my desire to continue my studies, the faculty and staff played a large role in solidifying my decision and motivated me to pursue this major. 

What I like most about FACS

I appreciate how engaging, supportive, and encouraging the faculty and students have been within FACS. Since day one of my FACS educational journey I have felt so welcomed! I have also met some of the brightest and most dedicated individuals within this program and I am happy to be a part of such an amazing college. I will cherish the friendships and mentors I have obtained during my studies and because of this family-like organization this experience will be one I’ll never forget. 

Post-graduation plans

After graduation I plan to continue on my financial planning journey. I have been offered a full-time position with a local financial advising firm once I complete my internship program.
