What makes Caldwell University unique or special?

The college took very good care of all of its students, including me. In times of need, I have received so much support from the Caldwell University community. I know I can count on helpful staff and faculty for help and advice in all situations. In addition, my friends were always there for me. This is the place where everyone cares.

What are your career goals and how has Caldwell University prepared you for them?

A master’s degree is a must in the new economic environment. Critical thinking combined with empathy, as we are taught here at Caldwell, will help us advance in graduate school and beyond.

What lessons have you learned at Caldwell University?

Organization keeps life simple and reduces stress. A big project can be broken down into small and easily accomplished parts. A final can be more effectively studied for in various one-hour sessions, rather than in the several hours of a last-minute all-nighter.

What was your biggest achievement at Caldwell University?

Every day at Caldwell has been an opportunity to learn something interesting and rise above obstacles. I am proud to be graduating at the top of my class in the business department and growing as a strong and intelligent person.What activities were you involved in at Caldwell University?

There are always fun and meaningful activities at Caldwell, but my most recent involvements included being a freshman orientation leader and the Circle K International Club treasurer. Previously, I held the position of vice president of the Student Government Association as well as student representative on the board of trustees’ Student Life Committee.
