MAJOR // BUSINESS ADMINISTRATION
CERTIFICATE // ENTREPRENEURIAL STUDIES
WHAT WILL YOU MISS? I will miss meeting new friends and having interactions that are both academic and social. Being able to juggle my kid’s activities with work, home, and school, because the days are short. My most important memory was being selected for the Public Service Credit Union Scholarship.
WHAT DID THE PUBLIC SERVICE CREDIT UNION (PSCU) SCHOLARSHIP MEAN TO YOU? The scholarship I received from PSCU was a monumental event in my life. To be selected as one of two recipients is an honor and opportunity. It allowed me to finish my degree at a faster pace and take on a certificate in addition to my degree. Everyone that I meet at PSCU are genuine individuals and their commitment to the community is seen by all in the Denver area, especially me.
FAVORITE PROFESSOR? There are so many professors that have made an impact on me. However, one of my favorite instructors was Lynn Kelly who taught Marketing, Public Relations & Problem-solving in the workplace. I loved the field trip she organized to Channel 7. This course was the perfect way to integrate my work experience with the curriculum. She always gave me her honest opinions and recommendations. Another favorite instructor is Arthur Jones. I took all his classes which resulted in an increased knowledge and love of music through history with various types of black music. I also took his class on the multicultural individual, which again gave me the knowledge and appreciation of what our society is today.
There’s also Martha Narey who taught me to enjoy science. I also enjoyed her jokes, wishing my son could experience instructors like this at his high school. Robert McGowan who brought personality into his lectures making the whole class erupt into laughter, as well as the capstone, which allowed me to use all the knowledge I learned from previous classes. I am thankful for Elizabeth Suarez for giving me the opportunity to work with a local entrepreneur and develop a business plan. Then there’s Bob Melvin and his economic classes. I loved his overall knowledge of economics, his financial truths and especially the Economic History class, because I like history.
FINAL THOUGHTS? Through The College, I was able to increase and fine tune my networking abilities because you meet women from all over Denver-Metro. Also, I have been told by several classmates that I am an “awesome researcher,” and I attribute this to my studies at TWC. Even at work, it’s been noticed because I have been given additional responsibilities for compiling and researching information. That is one attribute that I have developed that has been to my advantage.
