For Megan, being busy is her business.

“Being involved within an athletic team and holding campus jobs allowed me to meet many faculty members and build valuable relationships with them,” she says.

As Megan prepared to encounter the rigors of the business world, she got involved in numerous academic and athletic student groups. She held three campus jobs: student ambassador, athletic mentor, and student manager and head of marketing for Chartwells Dining Services.

Megan added a marketing major, too. She explains, “They pair very well together and have similar classes, which makes pursuing a double major more feasible.”

Megan landed a summer internship at Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance and Financial Services. She plans to work in a marketing firm after graduation and says her internship gave her valuable skills for a future career.

“It gave me a lot of experience to build on before I graduate.”
