Douglas, MA

Major Marketing

“My Honors courses challenge me and surround me with students who are just as determined. We get the chance to work on hands-on projects and apply what we're being taught to the world outside of Bryant.”

“I want to make the most of my four years of college,” says Caroline Meizen ’21, “and that means challenging myself and exploring.” A Marketing major concentrating in Sports Studies, Meizen says that adaptability is a key to success. “You need to be open to what’s around you. There will always be changing methods and new advances in any field.”

For Meizen, exploring means jumping at new opportunities, including being part of the student government’s Ways and Means Committee, where she helps make decisions that shape Bryant, and striving to get the most out of her courses ­– including her first year Global Foundations of Business (GFOB) class where she served as marketing director for her team’s simulated start-up.

In GFOB, Meizen was introduced to the concepts that will define her major, as well as how to run a business and how to work as a team. She also learned to not be afraid to ask questions. “Asking a question is the best way to learn, and my professor encouraged it,” she says. “And if you're asking for help, there are probably other people in the class that have the same question.”

A member of the Honors program, Meizen values the opportunities the program offers to dive deeper into her studies. “My Honors courses challenge me and surround me with students who are just as determined,” she says. “We get the chance to work on hands-on projects and apply what we're being taught to the world outside of Bryant.”

Meizen’s recent Sophomore International Experience trip to Argentina and Chile – the first time she’s ever left the country – has inspired her to continue traveling the world. “The trip was so eye-opening,” she says. “It's good to be able to step out of your comfort zone.”

That’s one of the biggest lessons she’s learned at Bryant, Meizen says – having the initiative to try something new can open so many doors. “I love running but I didn't know if I would be good enough to go D1,” she says. “But I decided to go for it and now I'm so glad to be part of the Cross Country and Track Teams. My teammates are like my second family.”

“Coming to Bryant is a great opportunity to step out of the bubble that you’re in now. It’s very challenging, but also rewarding in the sense that you’ll be more equipped to be a better person in business. You will also learn about yourself and your role within society, and how to best execute that role.”

“It's affirmed why I want to be a neuropsychologist. I want to use my problem-solving skills to help people who are living with neurological disorders. The more I learn, the more I love it.”

“A good teacher cares about your well-being as a person, about your growth. Good teachers make everyone feel valued. My professors didn’t just know my name. They knew what I needed as a student, what I wanted to do, and how to work with me to get me there.”
