“I want to talk about the moment that I decided to come to JMU. I’m from Boston, so this is kind of a reach for me. I was actually walking on the east side of campus with my mom after touring, and I realized that this is the school that I wanted to be at. I started thinking about all the things I had to do in order to get into school. I was still in 11th grade, and I started doing my applications, I started working so I could fill my applications with experience and show that I wanted to be here and get my GPA up.”

“I decided to do management because it kind of runs in my family. My grandfather owns a business, my uncle did and my father works for one of those … I felt like I should go into it, too.”
