I wanted to be known by my professors, not just some number or a face in an auditorium full of students.

I just knew I needed a major and figured that a business degree could be applied almost anywhere once I graduated. If anyone had asked me what I wanted to do when I graduated, I would have looked at them like a deer in the headlights.
