Taking The Opportunity To Lead

Sean's Suffolk Story

"Being here has given me a tremendous opportunity to lead and to connect with all sorts of people. I’ve had an experience that has really been outstanding."
Sean Walsh BS, Economics and Government, '17
Sean's Suffolk Story

My Suffolk Story started when I decided to enroll. It's been the best decision of my life. My story includes countless friends; I don't know where I'd be without them. I wanted to get involved at school, and Suffolk’s Student Government Association has allowed me to do that and become a leader.

Suffolk has given me an unbelievable number of opportunities that I don’t think I could have gotten anywhere else. I had two internships in my first two years here. I landed one of them when I was getting lunch near campus—where else can that happen? Being here has given me a tremendous opportunity to lead and to connect with all sorts of people. I’ve had an experience that has really been outstanding. 

What really defines my time here, I think, are the connections and friends I’ve made. The people I live with now are people that I met here at Suffolk. It’s really been just a great place to learn. The city is outstanding. It means the world to me to be able to learn here, study here, and grow from all the opportunities I’ve had.
