Class of 2011

I am currently spending a majority of my week as a data analyst just outside of Chicago, building data bases for a major food and beverage company. What was great about Marywood was that I never felt like just another number in any of my classes. I never felt out of place asking questions and that allowed me to get a better understanding of any and all concepts that I can now use to further my career.
