Student Testimonials for BUAD 3300

Sarah Neumeister
ROAR Graduate

When I began my very first semester at UCCS I found myself to be one of the very first students to participate in the R.O.A.R. program. If I am being honest, I felt that the first semester of of the program was tedious and time consuming. I had a full schedule and on top of that I am a wife and mother. The fact that I was having to take this "useless" course was a little annoying.  However, as my semester progressed so did my confidence in the R.O.A.R. experience. Things began to click. I realized that I had to do the small tedious work in the beginning to be able to find the  career pathways that best fit my specific personality traits.

I am now finishing my final R.O.A.R. program course. I have professional connections, a quality resume, interview experience, and internship experience in my preferred industry, I’ve pinpointed careers I want to pursue in the workforce, and so much more. Most importantly, my confidence in my abilities has been greatly heightened and I feel much more prepared for life after graduation.
