Sean Richards, Major in Data Analytics 

Sean Richards, '24I am from Rochester, NY, and I am currently majoring in Information Systems & Data Analytics with a minor in Data Science and Economics. I enjoy learning new things, gaining new experiences, and working hard. I am interested in technology and chose to major in IS and minor in Data Science to gain a better understanding of technology and how to interpret data to discover the countless ways in which information impacts the ever-changing business landscape. I am a social person and enjoy looking at and learning about our society and business environments from an Economical perspective. I love the friendliness and openness of Sellinger students and professors. Sellinger professors are always there to support you and help answer questions and it feels like they genuinely want each of us to succeed. I am excited to see what the next two years bring at Loyola in Sellinger.

Maddie Kammholz, Major in Data Analytics and Marketing, Minor in Writing 

Maddie Kammholz, '24I am a current junior from Rochester, New York majoring in Marketing and Information Systems with a minor in Writing. Within my first two years at Loyola, the Sellinger School of Business has definitely become a home to me on campus. I have gotten the opportunity to work with a variety of incredible professors and faculty members both inside and outside the classrooms of Sellinger. The continual challenge that Sellinger provides is both motivating and effective as it encourages me to push myself not only academically, but professionally and socially as well.

Peter LoPresti, Major in Marketing

Peter LoPresti, '24Hey everyone! I’m a junior from North Kingstown, Rhode Island (yes the state exists) studying Marketing, Info Systems, and Innovation & Entrepreneurship. Coming into Loyola, I was like a lot of people where I didn’t know what I wanted to study. After taking several intro level courses, talking with professors, and exploring career options, I decided Marketing was the path for me. What I love most about the Sellinger Business school are all the smart and passionate professors available to all students. They really want to see everyone succeed, and I’ve found them to be an extremely helpful resource especially when applying for jobs and deciding on my career path. In regard to marketing, what drew me in were all of the possibilities available with a degree—the world is really your oyster. In addition, with my passion for helping businesses grow through marketing, and the people skills required to succeed in the field, I knew without a shadow of a doubt that I was in the right place. Loyola also offers a variety of different business minors to students who want to gain more knowledge in the world of business, which is just another reason why I was attracted to the Sellinger Business School. I love sports, cooking/baking, and getting to know new people, so I’m excited to get to know you all and tell you why the Sellinger Business School is really one of Loyola’s best offerings.

Liliana Boudreau, Major in International Business and Sustainability Management

Liliana Boudreau, '24I am from Chatham, New Jersey, and I am a junior. I am an Economics and Sustainability Management double major with a minor in International Business. I chose these two majors because they focus on developing long-term economic growth while contributing to the growing solution of making companies more sustainable and preserving natural resources. I look forward to the relationships I will build with my professors and peers through the Sellinger School of Business and hope to utilize the skills I learn to create an environmental footprint for the future.

Nolan WalchkoNolan Walchko, Major in Finance

I am originally from Ellicott City, MD, and I am currently pursuing a major in Finance with a minor in Marketing. I am passionate about learning and am committed to working hard to achieve my academic and professional goals. My decision to major in Finance stems from my interest in understanding the intricate workings of financial systems and markets. I believe that a solid foundation in Finance, coupled with a minor in Marketing, will provide me with a well-rounded skill set to navigate the complexities of the business world. I recognize the importance of adapting to technological advancements in the financial sector. I am eager to leverage my knowledge and skills in Finance to analyze data and make informed decisions that contribute to the success of businesses in our ever-evolving economy. As a social individual, I find joy in examining our society and business environments from an economic perspective. This interest aligns with my minor in Marketing, as I am fascinated by the ways in which economic principles intersect with consumer behavior and market trends. Similar to the Sellinger students and professors at Loyola, I value the guidance and openness within the business school community. I look forward to building relationships with my professors and peers, and I am confident that the supportive environment within the Sellinger School of Business will play a crucial role in my academic and professional journey.
