Why are you "forever green"?

"I am forever grateful for the valuable experiences I received during my time at Northwest. Not only did I have the opportunity to learn from the best of the best in the Business School, but I also received tremendous mentoring and guidance while working as the graduate assistant at Office of Career Services (thanks Joan!). Some of my most fond memories are those with my sorority sisters. It was through my experiences with the sorority that allowed me to start thinking of myself as a leader."
