Top 3 things about Purdue:

Favorite activity or hobby:

I really enjoy reading books about prominent people that I hope to emulate their success.

Favorite class:

What makes BOP special?

  • Having like-minded students that are trying to be successful in business and in our communities
  • Support from older BOP students
  • Guidance from Darren Henry

Two questions: 1) Does your family feel the decision to participate in BOP has paid off? 2) How much studying do you do per week to maintain your 4.0 GPA?

My family definitely feels that BOP was the right decision and that it has paid off even before I graduated.  We have seen so much success through the scholarships, internships, and future potential opportunities.  My family would definitely agree that I am on the right track because of BOP.

Outside of class, I would say that I study 3-4 hours a day.  Typically, I will read the chapter and do the homework before class, go to class, and whatever I do not understand, I go to the professor's office hours to get help.  Furthermore, if the professor is not available, I can always count on a BOP student to help me out with my classes.
