Megan Driscoll started her college career at George Mason University and transferred to Western Connecticut State University for her sophomore year. "WestConn was not my first option," she admits, "because I am from Brookfield and the school was in my backyard, so I never gave it a fair look. But transferring to WestConn was the best decision I have made. Going through the marketing program here and having great advisers, I have made more connections than I would ever have made at a big-name university. The dedicated professors here want you to excel and enjoy learning, which is another reason why I have stayed at WestConn."

Driscoll says she decided to major in marketing is because it is an ever-changing field and the scope of a marketing degree is endless. "Being a marketer, you can work in many different areas -- whether it is data analytics, consumer behavior or the challenge of creating -- which is perfect for me, because I like options."

Many of Driscoll's mentors were her professors in Western's Ancell School of Business. "The advisers to the Western Marketing Association were great mentors as well," she says.

Asked what she will remember most about her Western experience, Driscoll says, "Placing fifth in the SABRE business simulation competition at the Annual American Marketing Association and beating out University of Pennsylvania."

After graduation, Driscoll plans on working in Business-to-Business Public Relations, and she plans on "living abroad for a couple of years working in PR."

Driscoll’s advice to new students entering WCSU is: "Get involved. Find your niche and stick with it, and if you are passionate about something -- you will excel."
