Jennifer was impressed and surprised by the lengths that faculty and staff at the Leventhal School of Accounting took to know and help their students. "They all know you by name," she said. "It doesn't matter what your background, if you're interested in accounting, they'll be sure you are prepared." Additionally, the faculty's professional expertise outside the curriculum was highly beneficial to her for both her career and her life.
