1. I hear this a lot:

1. "Is Cupid your real name?"

Yes, it is!

2. "Were you born on Valentine's Day?"

No. I was actually born just a few days before Halloween.

3. "Do you get that a lot?"

See first line.

2. I'm a transfer student.

I spent my first two years of college at a community college in Rochester, N.Y. During that time I started -- and was president of -- a professional development club, joined Phi Theta Kappa Honors Society, graduated with my associate's degree and made a lot of great friends along the way!

3. I took a gap year (or two)!

Unlike most students, when I graduated from high school I didn't jump right into college. I took two years off to figure out exactly what I wanted to major in and to explore the country! During those two years I went from wanting to be an astrophysicist, to a veterinarian, to a flight attendant. I finally decided on management consultant after I shadowed a family member who worked in the industry. While traveling, I discovered that my favorite places were the Thousand Islands and almost anywhere in the state of Florida!

4. I'm an economics major.

As someone who's always wanted to understand how the world works, I've found economics to be a great fit for me. It also provides so many professional opportunities that I know I'll be prepared for my career when I graduate.

5. I'm glad I chose Binghamton University!

When I was looking to transfer, I applied to 15 colleges. In the end, I decided to attend Binghamton and haven't regretted my decision even slightly ever since. I've interned, taken classes that interest me, been exposed to amazing networking and professional opportunities, participated in a case competition, and made great friends -- all without the looming fear of crippling student debt. I'm proud to be a Bearcat!
