“My educational road took several turns. I had gone to The Illinois Institute of Art in Chicago to study fashion design. I came here to PNC and fell in love with the university. My bachelor’s degree is in Liberal Studies.
I came here part-time for the first three years then I jumped it up to full time. The convenient schedule meant I could continue to work.
American Sign Language classes gave me the biggest taste of diversity I have ever had–I took four classes! One class attended public events where we had to sign. We also enjoyed a group dinner-signing only!
In my Labor Relations course, we did “mock” negotiations. We discussed insurance, tuition reimbursement, wages and working conditions. This and other experiences were so valuable.
I took advantage of the Career Development at PNC and worked with Allison Thomas on my résumé and career search.
I now work as an account representative for Foster Printing in Michigan City. I am happy that my career brings business and the arts together. I can go further in my career and I will! I’m looking at the PNC Saturday MBA.”
