My Bentley Story by Vicki Vassalotti Semanie
Alumnus/a, Bel Air, Maryland
The class of 1986 was the first class in which the percentage of women to the total class was greater than 50%. Personally, what this meant was that I was a young woman enrolled in a business school where it was common to be surrounded by other women. My experience at Bentley taught me that I could effectively compete with men in the classroom and be successful. Bentley University not only provided me with skill and knowledge, it also provided me with a level of confidence that has allowed me to be successful throughout my career.
