why things are they way they are, and found her passion in
Physics. Jenn has always had a love of learning and finds much joy in helping others become excited about learning something new as well.

Sarah is currently a junior, majoring in Psychology and
Business Administration. This is her first semester working as
an SI leader for Managerial Accounting. As a CAS student she
