For me, the Rice Business experience is unbelievable. I never thought that from the background I have, that I’d ever have this opportunity. I still have to pinch myself sometimes.

I loved accounting with Professor Rountree. He's so engaging and makes accounting much easier to understand. It wasn't a class I expected to enjoy and I did!
