At the heart of the Widener experience are the talented and caring professors who make their students' education and personal well-being their first priority.
Guidance and connections from mentors help place our students on the inside track to personal and professional success.
Whether presenting results or making recommendations, with my experience at Widener, I can speak the language. I don't think I would be as effective at what I do now without that experience.
On my first day I met with Professor Angie Corbo and within 24 hours she rearranged my schedule and perfectly fit me in to all of the communication and elective classes that I needed to be in. From there, she was my guardian angel.
Working on different projects at Widener taught me how to think on my feet. It taught me how to not leap before I think, but to leap while also thinking.
Every study abroad trip, every internship opportunity, every volunteer event, every class is contributing to me not only being a better person, but better in business. The world of business today requires us to be globally active.
To have people like that in your corner is amazing. They helped me gain the confidence to go into the field and to be on my ‘A’ game.
Widener has exposed me to opportunities that forever shaped my life. Now, as a well-traveled entrepreneur with a young but growing business, I am excited to see how Widener University is still preparing graduates toward a path of excellence.
