How has your UD education set you apart?

Andrew says that while at UD, he learned to read and write at a high level, a skill which sets him apart from many of his peers. “The fact that I can look at a problem, analyze my findings, and communicate them clearly has been absolutely invaluable,” he said.

Being involved with a variety of campus organizations was also an important factor in his success at UD and has helped in in his career. “By being involved with a lots of different groups—athletics, the UD Investing Club, the Alexander Hamilton Society, and ROTC, I learned to communicate with many different types of people,” he said. “That skill has helped me communicate effectively with my supervisors and coworkers in my professional roles.”

Andrew also credits UD with helping him to strengthen his Catholic faith. “UD instills Catholic values and virtues and teaches you to cherish the things that really matter,” he said. “That gives you something to hold on to once you leave.”
