            2007-2011, Bachelor of Arts (BA), Marketing/Marketing Management, General

            During my time at Hood College I was able to focus on my academics while getting highly involved on campus. It was my experience in the classroom and in extracurriculars that shaped me into the person I am today. While in class my professors took the time to get to know who I was and mentor when needed. In the extracurricular actitvities I was able to find my niche and develop the skills needed to be successful in the career I hold today.

            Hood has a wide variety of programs to help you learn and develop your whole person. The classes are small and you really get a chance to interact with the professors and your class mates. You can also "skip" to the next level when you find a class that is too easy and you can create an independent study to enable you to study what is important to you. Hood is about helping you get the most out of your time and helping you build your knowledge and your character. You will get a chance to create and lead a campus organization ( if you want), lead an athletic team, customize your studies and interact with others in the Frederick/ Baltimore/DC area and find work/study opportunities.
