Student — Accounting and Entrepreneurship
Why was SEMO a smart choice for you?
SEMO was far enough away from home that I got some freedom but close enough that I could easily come home for a day. SEMO’s tuition rates was another big factor in helping make my decision.
What is it that you feel sets SEMO apart when you were making your college decision?
The tuition price was one huge factor when I was making my decision. That and the scholarships I was afforded was hard to pass by.
What is your major and how do you feel that program is preparing you for a successful career?
I actually have 2 majors. One in accounting and one in entrepreneurship. The accounting major has taught me how to be resourceful and process difficult problems. My entrepreneurship major has taught me to adapt to new circumstances. The entrepreneurship major has also given me lots of connections that will go way further in my life and has given me people that I will always be able to get opinions from and bounce ideas off of.
Do you have a scholarship?
If you have a scholarship, how will your scholarship from SEMO help you graduate with less debt and what will that mean for your life after graduation?
I have received a few different scholarship before my time as SEMO and during my time. It has taken away some of the debt I would have had. This means that I will be able to pay the debt I do have off sooner and get to put my money toward something else quicker.
What is your favorite thing about SEMO?
My favorite thing about SEMO is probably my entrepreneurship professors. That and the scenery that the campus has.
Describe SEMO in two sentences.
SEMO’s campus feels kind of like home. There is something there for everyone.
What makes SEMO faculty great?
I feel like SEMO faculty, for the most part, care about their students and their future. They care about the topics they teach and not just there to work.
Describe life on campus?
Life on campus is fun. There is always people around. You see such a diverse group of people come together with the same goal in mind. So many people are willing to help others.
