Class of 2019

I chose Tampa because...

Coming from another country, choosing the perfect city was ideal. Tampa has the perfect weather, and a great Business program. The campus is really cosy, and makes you feel at home away from home. There are many activities to do, not only on campus but around the city.

My favorite spots in Tampa are...

UT is centrally located, and everything in walking distance which is something I really love. Hyde Park Village is a couple blocks away, and is a great place to go grab something to eat with friends or just relax in its park eating an ice cream. Right across our campus we also have the riverwalk, which is a great place to run or go for a walk, on the way you can find many restaurants and activities to do on the river, such as going on boats.

Favorite Tampa class/professor...

My favorite class at UT was Calculus for Business with Stephanie Branham. After struggling with math through my high school years, having to go trough another class just made me think about it twice. However, right after leaving the first class it left me loving the numbers. She made it seem easy, and I finally found the relation of math the real world.

A few of my life goals are...

After graduating college, I want to move on and do my masters degree. Eventually I dream on working for a multinational company for a couple years in order to get experience. After that I want to go back to Colombia and apply my knowledge to help my country, by building a company that will give back to those in need.
