"I graduated from Augustana in only three years. My peak experience was working part-time at John Deere Seeding Group in Moline, Illinois.

"I am in a better place than where I thought I would be four years ago. I came to college to improve upon my academics, but it is obvious that I have also bettered myself as a person. Today, I have a clearer view of where I stand morally, politically and socially. Augustana has provided me with the opportunities to study abroad in Spain, France, Vietnam and Hong Kong. Each experience was fantastic in its own right, but I feel especially moved by my time in Vietnam. I am forever a different, finer person because of it."
Danilo Panici '15, business administration-finance, accounting Completed internships with Lincoln Way Community Bank as a commercial lending intern and Griffith Laboratories in the corporate finance/accounting department; currently an assurance intern with PriceWaterhouseCoopers.
"The business administration department really goes out of their way to help students succeed in the classroom and out in the real world. The variety of classes I took helped me succeed in the two internships I have completed so far. I know that once I graduate, I will be prepared for any job that is
thrown at me-thanks to my advisor and the faculty in the department."
