As a kid from the Midwest stepping foot on campus in the fall of 2009, I could have never imagined what the next four years of my life would encapsulate. I would be given the opportunity to explore not only Boston, but the world. While broadening my business knowledge during my time at Bentley, I was able to study abroad in Italy and gain a perspective on the world that will stick with me for the rest of my life.
Back on this side of the pond, I decided to give swimming another chance. As luck would have it, my sister (a Bentley alum, and also pictured here) chose to do the same and we were able to compete alongside one another for the two years our time overlapped as members of the Bentley Swimming and Diving team. At the end of the day, Bentley, to me, is more than just the campus in Waltham. It represents lifelong memories and friendships developed over the course of four years that will last a lifetime.
