William Paterson’s Cotsakos College of Business has created the ultimate academic experience for me. All of my professors have been engaging, insightful, and helpful in making sure everyone understands the material. WP also gives students numerous opportunities to make professional connections to help pave a path to a successful career, such as Meet the Firms, when several accounting firms come to campus to accept student resumes and conduct interviews. This has overall been a life-changing experience that I am incredibly thankful for.
