Victoria Crocker, International Business 

“Roberts has made a major impact in my life and presented me with many amazing opportunities and learning experiences. The professors create a great environment for learning and are very approachable with any problem. They will go out of their way to help. There are also many clubs and programs that have helped me to meet new people and become more involved. As an International Business student, I get to study abroad, so I’m going to Australia. I am very excited for this adventure and expect to learn a lot and gain a greater understanding of international relations.”
