My Huntsman Experience

‘21, Management

I will always be grateful for my Huntsman experience. I was intimidated by the thought of going back to school after being a stay-at-home mom for ten years. After my husband’s death, I knew I had to earn a degree to begin a career to provide for my children.

“I have realized that my potential is only restrained by the constraints I put on it.”

From the first day I stepped into the bright open building called Huntsman Hall I felt the emphasis the school puts on the student experience. My first encounter with the school was my visit to the academic counselors’ office where I was encouraged to not only attend the school but to apply to the Huntsman Scholars program as well. I will be forever grateful to that counselor who saw more potential in me than I saw in myself at that time and her encouragement to try and trust in my abilities. That first encounter has shaped my Huntsman experience. I was given the confidence to join a club leadership board, apply to internships, and to develop new skills I didn’t know were possible for me. While attending the Huntsman School I have realized that my potential is only restrained by the constraints I put on it. I know without a doubt if I didn’t attend the Huntsman School I would never have had the courage to be where I am today.

The Huntsman School will provide me with more than a degree. With all the optional opportunities in career development, leadership, and networking, I have been infused with confidence and am ready to answer the call to dare mighty things.
