What is one of your favorite things about SUNY Cobleskill?

The small campus community and how friendly and welcoming the campus community is.


What advice would you give a prospective student about choosing a college?

Make sure you visit, you can learn a lot about a campus and determine if the college is the right fit for you.


What is an interesting hobby or special talent you have?

Party planning - I am the person that everyone expects to plan "the fun". I also love to garden and cook.


What program did you study at SUNY Cobleskill?

I studied Business Management at Cobleskill and I think it provided me the opportunity to learn really practical skills. Everything is a business, whether you work in a hospital, restaurant or in my case a college. Learning how to work with others, how to manage people, how to predict and interpret data is beneficial in any career. 


What did you like best about your college experience?

I love to meet new people, so I would have to say that was probably the best part of college.
