What impact has the professional business fraternity had on your experience?
It’s had a really great impact. It’s helped me surround myself with motivated individuals, which is probably the biggest thing. There are a lot of resources through it too. Like, oftentimes when I take a class, someone in the fraternity is already in the class or has taken it before. They’ve also helped with guidance for career stuff. We hold events with people already in the professional world, so there are a lot of resources at my fingertips.
