  • I was pretty nervous on the first day of MSM orientation; I moved from California to Indiana and knew next to nothing about business. At first, I was really questioning whether I fit in at Notre Dame, but now it has become like a second home to me. One of the best things about Notre Dame is that we are all like one big family from home game tailgates to struggling through accounting together.
