Through the College of Business and Security Management, I traveled to New York, visited the NY Stock Exchange, competed in a student human resources competition in Salt Lake City, landed two excellent internships with BP and eventually obtained an amazing career in HR with a Fortune 500 company headquartered in Arizona. The many in classroom and out of classroom experiences prepared me for the professional world.
