Originally from Conyngham, Pa., Ben chose Loyola because of its size. “I wanted a community that was small enough to know me personally, but large enough to provide well-rounded opportunities rooted in the Jesuit mission,” says the finance major. Beyond his classes, Ben is involved in Greyhound Ambassadors, the Jesuit honor society Alpha Sigma Nu, Loyola’s Student Government Association, Financial Management Association, and the Fixed Income Society. A Sellinger Scholar, Ben says the business honors program has provided him with lifelong friendships and helped him grow professionally: “As a Selling Scholar I’ve learned networking skills, gained confidence in public speaking, and learned how to approach challenges from a more diverse and global perspective,” he says. He credits his professors and mentors with preparing him for success after graduation through providing guidance and helping him realize his purpose and passion. He has already accepted a full-time job at JPMorgan Chase following graduation in the spring. “I am looking forward to joining JPMorgan in New York full-time, and I anticipate there being some similarities there with my experience at Loyola: a great sense of community and a commitment to bring your best self to work every day.”
