I chose Bryant because I fell in love with the campus and what it stood for the first day I stepped on campus. One of the main reasons it felt like a great fit was the small, tight knit community. After going to a huge high school, I was looking for a college where I could get one on one attention, and form relationships with majority of campus, Bryant was just that. In addition, the facilities were amazing, campus was beautiful, and the people were always so welcoming. It felt like home before I had even applied.
I applied to a number of both business and liberal arts schools in the Northeast. After receiving my acceptance letters, I first narrowed my choices down to the schools where I got the most financial aid and scholarships, which left me with four options. From there, I decided that I was more interested in getting a degree in business, which left me with two schools to choose between (Bryant and one of its main "competitors"). After taking a tour at the other school, and doing an overnight at Bryant (who reimbursed me for the cost of my plane ticket), I knew Bryant was where I wanted to be.
The first thing I fell in love with about the school was the strong sense of community. Unlike the other school I visited, students at Bryant seemed really welcoming and close. The other big draw to the school was the International Business program, which I heard from multiple students was "the best" major to be at Bryant. Students talked about the amazing professors, the study abroad and language minor requirements, and the international job opportunities that come from being an "IB" major. As someone who has always dreamed of living and working abroad, there was no question left in my mind. Also, the campus is gorgeous.
Since coming to Bryant (I'm now in my senior year), I've found that these are still among my favorite things about the university. I have absolutely loved the International Business program, and I have made some amazing friends from all over the world. I'm excited to graduate, but it's bittersweet to leave this place - and people - that I've come to consider my home.
