Business Administration Major

What's a typical day at Colby-Sawyer like?

I usually wake up just before class, go to the dining hall between classes, play soccer, socialize, prepare for the next day and go to bed.

What was your favorite class and why?

Introduction to Business because it gave me a introduction to the real world of business and helped me to decide on my career.

Who is your favorite professor and why?

If I have to choose one specific professor among all the best professors then I would say Chris Kubik because he knows how to make the course material and class environment interesting, to help us understand and learn more.

What's the biggest challenge you have faced so far?

Keeping up with my dreams.

Why do you want to major in Business Administration?

I was originally undecided for a major, but after taking Introduction to Business with Chris Kubik, he changed my view towards business and how the world depends on business. Moreover, I want to apply the business ideas that I will learn here to promote business in my home country, Nepal.

What do you do for fun in your spare time?

Depending on the season I usually play different kinds of sports, hike around the New London area and hang out in the Lethbridge Lodge.

How do you like the town of New London?

New London is a fun, beautiful, charming and inviting town to create special memories.
