It’s always great to know who is involved with your school because it really shows what type of environment you will be in. Today’s interview brought me to the lovely, laid back, cool, and friendly Laura Blomgren, Director of Financial Aid. This interview was short, sweet and very informative for this blog post that I hope you enjoy.
Q: What college did you attend?
A: Goldey-Beacom College
Q: What was your major and how long did it take for you to achieve it?
A: Well, before I went to Goldey-Beacom I did attend Delaware County Community College for 3 semesters to attain my General Education Studies. Once I did that, I transferred those credits over to Goldey-Beacom and received my Bachelor of Science in Financial Management within three years. A few months before I graduated with my Bachelors, I decided to pursue my MBA with a concentration in Financial Management, which I then completed within a year.
Q: What’s something you admire about P.I.T?
A: My favorite thing about P.I.T is how the ELT (Executive Leadership Team) works as a team and also being able to help students obtain their goal and help them strive for success.
Q: Have any hobbies?
A: Yes, I love biking and also going to concerts!
Q: Who is your inspiration and why?
A: I would have to say my parents are my inspiration. They have been through some rough patches and they just help out a lot when they don’t need to, including helping my brother and me.
Q: When did you start working here at the Pennsylvania Institute of Technology?
A: I started working here this past August 2014, I really enjoy it, and I’m still standing!
Q: Proudest moment?
A: Hmm… I think graduating college with an MBA is one of my proudest moments for sure.
Q: If you could change anything about your past, what would it be?
A: Nothing. I have no regrets because what I did in the past made me the person I am today.
