Hear From Our Students

Slide 1
"When joining Bushnell I was originally a Comm Major (shout out Doyle) but ultimately made the decision to change and become Business Major. What drew me the most was that a Business degree could be used in so many different capacities. I remember my roommate Nick and I would always go back to our dorm/ apartment late at night and try to come up with next big thing. He often reselling tickets for concerts and basketball games and me; I would be buying and flipping Jordans to the local sneakerhead community. Business was just something that was always in me."

"Bushnell is teaching me so much about who I am and who I want to be. The best thing about the programs that I am involved with at Bushnell is that everyone cares. There is always someone willing to take the time to talk with you and help you through whatever you are going through at that moment."
