“Academically, IU East has given me many opportunities that have worked for my college career so well. Being able to take online classes has taken many stressors off my life. Having a very flexible schedule with my school work has allowed me to work for the Office of Campus Life and given me opportunities to learn how to work in an office and see how different things work on a daily basis. My concentration is in Finance and I have always thought about working in a bank one day. I was blessed with an opportunity to work for First Bank Richmond this summer in the mortgage and consumer loans department. I really just wanted to see what the typical 9-5 bank job was like every day. While I was there I got to meet so many great people and do great things with First Bank Richmond. I made connections with many people that could help me in the near future. Every day in my internship, I was also able to work alongside professionals and experience the type of job where people enjoyed coming to work – which helped cement my interest in working in finance.”

“My time spent at IU East has given me so much more than just Business knowledge for my degree. I have made so many memories from all of my experiences. I like to think that it all started to saying yes to the Honors Program. I am so glad that I said yes to one experience that led me to so many others. I would like to say thank you to all of you that have helped me along the way and have given me the best kind of college experience that I could ever have asked for and have made it possible through scholarships such as the Mark Gardner Memorial Scholarship and the IU East Accounting Student Scholarship. The impact that you all make in helping students find new experiences makes all the difference. Thank you.”
