As an international student in the United States, it can be difficult to find a campus community where you “fit in” and can grow as an individual. Once I met a few faculty, staff and students, I knew Bay Path would broaden my American experiences.
Bay Path wants you to pursue life-changing moments that better you as a person and an up-and-coming professional. The environment is full of encouragement. As an international student, you relax and realize you’re not much different than your American peers. The Bay Path community accepts you and wants you to become the leader they know you can be.
For me, Bay Path also helped me develop a healthy, competitive nature. From playing the violin in Performing Arts productions to being a student-athlete on the ice hockey team, I have taken full advantage of my time at Bay Path. However, I’m most proud of my two-year internship with the Springfield Partners for Community Action. There, I combined my love of accounting with my desire to give back to the community by helping low-income residents complete their state and federal taxes. After my first year with Springfield Partners, I oversaw nearly 15 Bay Path students who agreed to volunteer for the 2009 tax season. Through these experiences and my courses, I have the confidence I need to pursue my accounting career, and soon I will take the certified public accountant exam and begin my graduate studies.
Bay Path expects a lot from you, but you gain so much more in return—a high quality education, opportunities to serve others, and friends for life.
