I'm...

  • the events chair for the Spiritual Life Council and Kappa Kappa Gamma sorority
  • passionate about stopping animal cruelty
  • a huge fan of Harry Potter and Game of Thrones

I love how small Elmhurst is, and that if I ever need help, it’s easy to find.

I'm...

  • a two-year letter winner on the lacrosse team
  • coaching middle school lacrosse club travel teams
  • a huge fan of the Cubs and Miami Dolphins

I saw the business operations side of the Dolphins football team and decided that’s something I’d like to pursue.

Christian Galante ’19

I'm...

  • a finance and international business major
  • a huge coffee fan and worked at the Frick Center coffee bar
  • known to put Sriracha hot sauce on anything

My study abroad trip [to Rome and other European cities] helped me get the internship. My interviewer was Italian and we made a connection.
