Major/Minor: Finance
Graduation Date:

Significant Professional or Academic Accomplishments: Roz joined the CSTEP Program at The College at Brockport in Fall 2008. Like so many people of her generation, Roz had a vague idea of wanting to help people. Becoming part of the CSTEP program helped her identify specific ways to achieve her objective: Roz regularly attends professional development seminars at the CSTEP office that help her strengthen those competencies that are so vital to success in graduate school. She also joined Alpha Phi Omega, a national co-ed service fraternity; she participates in several campus student associations and councils; and she became an officer in the Brockport Business Club. Roz also works as a resident assistant in a freshman dorm and is part of the Delta College Learning Community. She accomplishes all this while maintaining a 3.86 GPA. And, because she understands the importance of a constantly growing global world, she spent the Spring 2011 semester studying in Beijing, China.

A first generation U.S. citizen and a first generation college student, Roz decided to major in finance since it allows her to focus her attention on the financial health of minority families, many of whom, she states, “may be unwittingly tossing their financial futures on the junk pile.” Thus, in 2010, Roz was selected to attend the Southern Regional Education Board’s Compact for Diversity in Tampa, Fl, where she learned about a relatively new field, neuro-economics, which researches how people make decisions and how this impacts economic behavior. Under the guidance of her CSTEP faculty mentor, Roz will conduct an in-depth research project on this topic that she hopes to present at the 2012 Annual CSTEP Conference and Brockport’s Scholars Day. Currently, Roz is planning to attend Harvard Business School; she is scheduled for an interview in the fall of 2011.
