Greetings from Simon!

By: Eileen

As the newest member of the Admissions blogging gang, I wanted to share a little about myself and my experience at Simon.  I’ve been working here in Admissions for almost 2 years, and absolutely love my job.  Every day is different, as I am lucky enough to meet a myriad of different prospective students, talk about their experiences and what they hope to accomplish in the future.  The students at Simon are incredibly motivated, which only helps encourage me to continue helping bring in more students who can succeed and make a difference in the Simon community.

 I am also fortunate enough to work with our students at the classroom level, as I am currently about halfway through my part-time (flex) MBA program.  This part-time program gives the option to either take one or two classes each quarter (or even take a quarter off if needed), and provides the opportunity to work with students in each of our MBA and MS programs.  So far I have been extremely thankful to the professors, who make a point to get to know the students in the class.  If I ever need to meet with a professor or just have a question about an assignment, the response time to my email is always mind-blowing.  I sometimes wonder when they eat and sleep, it seems as though I will generally receive a response in less than 24 hours, regardless of the time day or night.  Each of the programs involves a significant amount of work, but it is always worth the group meetings and late-night studying.

 I am grateful to be able to get to know such a diverse group of students and learn from them as much as from the professors.  With graduation this past weekend, I couldn’t be more excited for the outgoing MBA and MS classes.  They have been a tremendous inspiration and a reminder that dedication and teamwork will always lead to high achievements.
