"The support system I have with professors, friends and coworkers from Northwestern has been helpful as I've moved into my career.
The things I learned at UNW about my career and about my spiritual life are being practiced and lived out every day."
"Professors at Northwestern encourage me to succeed. As a result I had a social media internship last summer, and then did another research assistant internship. My student position at the UNW Center for Calling & Career has given me an understanding of internal communication and organizing events."
