Getting to know Denard ...

What is your favorite thing about reading applications?

I enjoy personally meeting a student at their high school or local college fair rather than getting to know them through their application materials. However, reading essays and resumes detailing the involvement a student has had during their high school career gives a nice perspective on how they will succeed in college.

What is your favorite location on campus?

The  John W. Smithson Field for baseball is my favorite. The 6500 seat ballpark is a fantastic addition to our campus.

What would you do over again from your college experience, if you had the chance?

I believe every decision a student makes in college, whether great or not so great, is a decision that they will learn from regardless. I would do the ENTIRE college experience over again if I had a chance as it is such a meaningful time of a young adult's life!  

What is your favorite thing to do in Philadelphia?

It’s all about the food in Philly so I would say eating is my favorite activity! From Reading Terminal to Devon’s, there is truly something for everyone in this city when it comes to amazing food.

Why did you decide to study Business Administration in College?

I chose to major in Business Administration in college because there were many aspects of the curriculum I started to like in high school such as economics and finance. Being able to combine my interest in Management Information Systems with this major made for more academic enjoyment throughout my 4 years.
