Why did you choose Bryant?

I chose Bryant because of the Communication Department. The professors have good reviews and a passionate teaching style. The required classes for digital communication were exactly what I wanted and sounded fun.

Two of my favorite classes are Digital Storytelling, with Professor Thomas Zammarelli, and Interpersonal Communication, with Professor Kristen Berkos. Both professors are enthusiastic about the topic and make the class entertaining.

What are you hoping to do with your degree?

My plan is to get a job in social media and work with an athletic company in their digital department.

What do you love about the Bulldog community?

My favorite part of Bryant is the size. Everyone knows one another and there are always people around you to support you.

"My high school accounting teacher ... is a Bryant alum and would tell us about finance as a career and all the options it would give us. He encouraged me to go to Bryant and helped me through the process."
