“The people here are so genuine, driven, and passionate about all they are involved in, and it’s inspiring to be surrounded by that.”
For the majority of the college selection process, I was on the fence. I was looking for that "ah-ha" moment, and that happened when I participated in the Business Scholarship Competition. I've been a sports fanatic all my life, so talking to Dr. McClung from the Business School about the recent addition of the Sports Business program was a game-changer. Now that I’m at Mercer, I love to play intramural sports, serve as a Class Senator for the Student Government Association, participate in Mercer’s Pre-Law Society, be an active brother in my fraternity, and help with the Minority Mentors Program. After I graduate, I plan to get my MBA, maybe work for a year or two, and then go to law school.
