Alumnus Perspective

“St. Norbert provided me with a number of amazing experiences, including a semester in London with an internship at the London Stock Exchange, a ‘Semester at Sea’ academic voyage around the world, a 10-day Geography of Mexico field study and a United Nations seminar in New York City. I credit much of my career success to my experiences inside and outside of the classroom at SNC.”
