Putting His Passion To Work

Kevin's Suffolk Story

“I can't thank Suffolk University and the professors that I've had enough for helping me fit my passion in life into my successful college career!”

Kevin's Suffolk Story

Going into college, I dreamed of being a theatre major until my parents convinced me not to. I started off in the Sawyer Business School and knew absolutely nothing about business. I didn't want to be there. Then I discovered my passion for marketing. 

I was then soon able to combine the two components of my passion and my education, becoming the PR/marketing manager for Suffolk’s Performing Arts Office during my sophomore year. This put me in my first of many leadership roles at Suffolk and also showed me that I can work anywhere with a business degree—not just for a huge corporation. 

During my junior year, I got an internship offer from a theatre company as a marketing Intern. I then declared a minor in arts administration. 

By slowly finding how to fit what I wanted with what I was doing for my education, I became a happier student. I can't thank Suffolk University and the professors that I've had enough for helping me fit my passion in life into my successful college career!
