Although I honestly love all of my classes so far this term, one of the coolest ones I am taking is called “The Mind of the Entrepreneur.” It’s sort of an economics-psychology hybrid and after having sat in on it during my winter break last year, it became a major pull for my transferring to Union. I was awed by the amount of creativity and teamwork the course seemed to foster and I knew I just had to take it. Our first project this year is something called the “Price Chopper Ultimate Innovation Challenge.” Price Chopper Supermarkets is offering college students major cash prizes for developing original, creative, and innovative concepts that would be relevant and meaningful to Price Chopper. While my classmates and I are still just at the very early stages of of our challenge planning, with the Price Chopper headquarters virtually on campus, Union needs to produce a winning team this year!
I am a senior in college who will be off in the wonderful world of finance come July. While my resume passions include scrupulously watching economic indicators and reading the Wall Street Journal, I could just as happily spend all day reading blogs and sharing my passion for food, fashion, and fun. I chew too much gum and probably write too many lists. I know I don't know everything just yet, but TheGarnetLetter is the beginning of my little thank you note to the wonderful world!
