Hi! My name is Danielle Godi and I am a Senior Management major pursuing a career in the Human Resources field.

I am also the President of Alpha Kappa Psi, a co-ed professional business fraternity on campus, and have a part-time job in the Dean’s Office at the School of Business. While I am involved in numerous organizations, I spend my free time at the gym, seeing my friends, and going to the beach!

Hi everyone, My name is Jess Griffin. I am a Junior Management major with a concentration in Entrepreneurship and minoring in Global Studies. I plan to study abroad in either Australia or New Zealand, which will hopefully help me decide if I want to move/travel there after graduation! Throughout my Freshman year at UConn I tried out a ton of different clubs and activities from baking cupcakes for donation to being a Husky Ambassador. Getting involved while on campus was. a great way to meet other people and get acclimated to the campus.
Outside of school I have been focused on gaining experience. Last year, I started out the fall in Portland, ME painting for my past company, while also building their new website. Then I earned a position as an administrative assistant during the Spring. And this summer, I took a step back and decided to grow my painting reputation in my town! As you can probably tell, I tend to bounce around from opportunity to opportunity because professionally, I am still figuring out what I like to do and what I am good at! I am all about experiences whether they are good or bad because I am always learning and growing.

Moreover, a couple fun facts about me would be that I am a huge football fan(Go Giants!), I love to hike especially while in school because it's a great break from staring at my laptop, and I'm always looking to travel/ go on trips!

Hi! My name is Angela King and I am from Avondale, PA. I am a senior Management major excited to be studying abroad with The Umbra Institute in Perugia, Italy for the Fall 2021 semester. I absolutely love being a management major because of its versatility to go abroad, pick up a minor, or choose a concentration. Throughout my time at UConn I was involved with the Business Connections Learning Community for two years, serving as the Management Committee Head. I am also a member of Delta Sigma Pi, a professional co-ed business fraternity where I have held the executive position of Historian.

Hi my name is Kathryn Lawton and I’m a senior currently pursuing a major in Management with a minor in Healthcare Management. Prior to coming to UCONN I attended Manchester Community College for my first two years, so I have experienced first hand the transferring process from another school to UCONN.  This summer I worked my regular two jobs, while also representing and being an ambassador for the clothing app “Curtsy”, which gave me a great social media marketing experience. On campus my favorite spots are definitely the library and horse barn hill! When I’m not attending classes you can find me watching kids, bartending, reading, and working out!

Hi! My name is Hayden O'Dell. I'm a senior studying Management with a minor in Analytics. I started my UConn journey with the Business Connections Learning Community, and decided to become a Resident Assistant the following year. This year, I'm looking to try new clubs! I've had a couple of internships throughout school, one at a staffing agency and another at a cybersecurity company. Both of them were at home in Boston, MA.
