- Major, MinorMathematics, Economics
Rachel is from Buffalo, N.Y., and she is majoring in mathematics because she has always loved the process of problem solving and the logic of the field. She decided to minor in economics after taking a microeconomics course and realizing she loved learning about the economy. “I also think that a minor in economics is preparing me for future jobs that involve some business knowledge.” Rachel is a CPaMS Scholar who has enjoyed being a member of this learning community since day one. “The CPaMS program offers a small and close-knit environment of peers, advisors, and professors. It has allowed me to grow and gain exposure to a variety of different skill sets while connecting me to people who share my academic interests.” Rachel says the support and community that Loyola offers has made all the difference in her academic experience. “The support I feel from my professors and classmates has proven that Loyola is a university filled with kind-hearted people who want you to be the best you can be.” Beyond STEM, Rachel can already see how Loyola’s core curriculum is making her a stronger, more well-rounded student. “Through the core, I have been exposed to theology and philosophy. These two fields share several similar principles and concepts; my courses in these areas have strengthened my logical thinking, which is greatly helping me as I solve my math problems.” Beyond her classes, Rachel is a member of the women’s swimming and diving team, a writer for Loyola Spoon University, and involved with Hound Hangout.
See all Students
My favorite thing about Loyola is everyone’s enthusiasm to be a part of this community. The university beams with students, faculty, and staff who want to be here. What's more, my program is designed to help students excel and flourish through interpersonal connections, and it will immensely prepare you to figure out exactly what you are interested in and want to study.
