"I wanted to pursue my passions of service and education by starting a non-profit organization for education. I decided in order to achieve that, I would pursue a business degree. After considering and visiting a few universities, I felt most at home at Michigan Tech. Four years later, I am about to graduate with my bachelor’s degree in accounting and finance, but am staying until December to get my accelerated master’s in accounting. This experience has been a whirlwind—classes, student organizations, work—but I wouldn’t have had it any other way."Gina Roose, 2018
