In the days leading up to the IUPUI Top 100 Outstanding Students Recognition Dinner, we will be featuring the Kelley students who were named among IUPUI’s Top 100 students in 2018.
What has been your favorite experience so far at Kelley?
Clara: My favorite experience was I-Core. Although it was a difficult semester, I learned a lot, and I also connected with my peers more than ever.
What has been your favorite class and why?
My favorite class was RoadTrip (BUS-X103) with Maureen Kinney. We visited numerous companies in almost every Kelley major in Indianapolis. This is where I made some great friendships!
If you had to pick one professor who has impacted you the most while at Kelley, who would it be?
Professor [Judy] Wright has impacted me by how caring she is. I hope to be as classy as she is one day.
Where do you see yourself after you graduate?
I will be a Financial Advisor for Edward Jones, and I hope to continue to volunteer in my free time after graduation.
Favorite activity/extracurricular activity that you have been involved in while at Kelley?
I love my brothers in Delta Sigma Pi! From professional events to volunteering, the brotherhood has impacted me for life!
What is your advice to current Kelley students?
My advice is to get involved with at least two things at IUPUI, one in Kelley and the other outside of Kelley. Having friendships with your classmates outside of the classroom will make you a better student, because you can study together and you have more in common with one another. Having friends outside of Kelley, too, makes you more well-rounded.
What is your Kelley moment?
My Kelley Moment was my summer internship where I worked directly with an Edward Jones Financial Advisor and Kelley alumnus. I learned so much from him, including both hard and soft skills necessary for the industry, and we bonded over being in Kelley.
