"This summer I have earned an internship with the Connecticut Office of the State Treasury as a Public Policy / Government Intern. I have had the opportunity to monitor legislation, participate in lobby visits, and attend Congressional hearings and press conferences. I am also being held responsible for analyzing data for many topics, including gun regulation and energy efficiency. I am using that data to consider alternative possible courses of action to enable decision makers to make informed choices.

At the Barney School of Business, there is an environment of learning, an attitude of learning and an excitement about learning. The reason that we are here is to become better people in a variety of different ways. The professors at the Barney School of Business personally interact with every student. Whatever kind of help a student needs, whether it is with interpersonal skills or academic skills, the help is here for that student. They are also great examples and role models for professional and altruistic behavior. We as students, use those examples in making our own decisions and in following our own lives. The Barney School prepares individuals to be leaders who are globally aware and socially responsible."
