Anna Vorderbrueggen, Sports Management & Marketing

The Undergrad Business department is one of the best departments at Roberts.  I am being molded for more than a career in the business field - I am being shaped for life in and outside of the workforce.  Being a part of this program provides me with many unique real-life experiences such as Enactus.  Also, the professors, faculty, and staff are always willing to go above and beyond to make sure that my time here at Roberts is time well spent.  I have chosen to stay a part of this program because of the people, the experiences, and the impact I am making on others. I am truly blessed to be a part of Roberts!
