Thoughts on Ball State: "The most significant aspect of my Ball State experience was my involvement in the business fraternity Delta Sigma Pi. I was pledge class president, which taught me Robert's Rules of Order, how to run meetings, organize projects, and lead people. A local financial planner, David Stocker, spoke at a professional speaker night and dinner afterward turned into an internship, a full-time job, and seven years of employment being mentored by an excellent advisor. My favorite memories also include lunch after class at the Flying Tomato, $3.99 Papa John's Pizza, attending men's basketball games at the new Worthen Arena, and playing intramural sports."
