Nick's Suffolk StoryI met my future wife through a mutual friend at the Suffolk University bookstore during my freshman year. I was looking for textbooks, and she was willing to sell me her calculus textbook at a reduced price. I never had to buy a textbook thereafter. To this day, I'm not sure who got the better deal.
I am most proud of the connections I made through my time here at Suffolk, whether that be with other students, professors, faculty, security officers, or business professionals who walked in and out of these campus doors. Over time I realized the importance of networking, so I make sure I always carry a pen and a dozen or so business cards with me when walking around campus. You never know who you will bump into!
When I walked across the stage to shake hands with the president and reach for my undergraduate diploma, I became the first in my immediate family to graduate from college. I knew at that point that I made my parents and family proud.
I am proud as I look back as a graduate student. As part of my first semester as a freshman, I had to make a group presentation to a bunch of C-level business professionals on the 29th floor of One Beacon Street. As I walked up the street on the day of the presentation, I looked up at the building and said, "I will work up there one day." Fast-forward to my junior year: through the help of the Career Development Center, I applied for and landed an intern position with the company that worked on that floor of One Beacon.
