Thoughts on Ball State
: “Three things stand out: being elected and
serving as student body president, putting my graduation on the line
to present my business plan to a board of outside evaluators through
the entrepreneurship program, and being a Sigma Chi, which allowed
me to hone many of my leadership skills.”
