Ryan Spellins remembers how important last year’s 25 Under 25 award in the College of Business was for him.
The recognition has helped him land a pretty sweet job.
“I’m going to be starting as a financial analyst for Goldman Sachs in the middle of March. I just received that job offer this week,” he said.
He had planned to enter the Marine Corps for flight school, but when military cuts delayed everything, he decided to pursue his other passion: finance. Now, he’s on his way to Salt Lake City, Utah.
“It just gave me the opportunity to network and be comfortable with high-up management, executives, and just really be involved with the community,” he said.
The College of Business is taking applications for its 25 under 25 program, which recognizes 25 undergraduates under the age of 25 who have demonstrated excellence in at least two of the following four areas: scholarship, professional development, leadership, and community/campus service.
Applicants must be admitted to the College of Business and have a minimum 3.0 cumulative GPA at the time of application.
Below is a video the College of Business has provided for tips on filling out the application, which is due no later than 11:59 p.m. on March 6.
