“Tuck has given me the confidence to succeed—it has molded me into a strong business leader.”
At Tuck everyone is present—they’re fully engaged and are genuinely there to learn and grow from one another. As overused as the term may be, Tuck is a community unlike any other. During my decision process, I truly felt that I would be supported in everything that I pursued at this school and, I was right! The student body, our professors, and the faculty really care about me and my success. I am not just a number.
Zippity is an entrepreneurial First Year Project (FYP) that provides a subscription car-care service at one’s place of work. During this FYP, I applied everything that I had learned in my first-year core courses to solve real-world-problems in a “safe” learning environment.
Because of this FYP experience, I’m starting my internship with more confidence and excitement. I’m ready to (again) put these skills to valuable use.
I knew I wanted to build my career in the technology sector, so before school started, I attended the Career Insight and Expedition trip to Silicon Valley coordinated by the Career Development Office. We interacted with a number of companies in the tech space including Facebook, Google/Nest, Pandora, and EnerNOC to name a few. It was access unlike any other.
Tuck teaches you how multi-dimensional business is done: I experienced it first-hand through my core courses which help you build on your weaknesses and expand upon your strengths. The school exposes you to a wide variety of opportunities and lets you decide what you want to focus on.

Before Tuck, I frequently doubted my capabilities. This place has given me the confidence to succeed, it has molded me into a strong business leader and has put me on a path to a bright future.
What I love most about Tuck is how it makes me feel: it is my home.
