Business Administration, '19
From the Green Mountains to Spartan 343 green, Alexandre Forest has found Castleton University to be exactly what she was looking for.
Graduating in 2019, Forest finished her degree in Business Administration with a concentration in Marketing. The Business Administration program offers a variety of options for business majors, including bachelor’s degrees in Accounting, Management, and Marketing, a major-by-contract associate’s degree in Business Administration, and minors in Social Media Marketing, Finance, and Marketing.
“Castleton has changed my future goals by allowing me to change my mind and develop as a person the way I see fit,” she said. “I came in thinking I'd go into Business Administration, but then I discovered more about myself and learned more about other business avenues throughout classes.”
Forest believes a concentration in Marketing is the perfect fit for her.
The connections Forest has made with professors at the University has helped her succeed both inside and outside of the classroom, including Bill Wiles, her mentor and supervisor in the Academic Support Center.
“We meet up frequently to catch up,” she said. “I have been very lucky for his care and support.”
Forest plans to land a position in either public relations or with a marketing firm. She is also looking forward to expanding her horizons and travel. Forest will always remember the feeling of home at Castleton.
“I will remember the friendships that I had made during my time at Castleton, as well as a few trustworthy relationships with professors,” she said. “I'll remember going to athletic games with friends, enjoying classes, meeting new people, and making the best out of four, short years.”
