Where will you be working post-graduation?

Deloitte & Touche, LLP – Technology Risk Consultant (Starting July 2013) in New York City

What have been some of the benefits of being an OTHC scholar?

Aside from helping subsidize the costs of pursuing both my undergraduate and graduate education, the OTHC Scholarship has helped me build relationships with people in and out of Syracuse University that are genuinely interested in my advancement.

Words of Advice to Current Students

Find your passion, commit to that passion and make that passion contagious.

Encouraging Alumni Support for the OTHC Scholarship

The Office of Program Development does an amazing job at creating a community of giving by working diligently with alumni to help pave the way for generations of thought leaders to come. Without the support of our donors, the achievements of Our Time Has Come Scholarship recipients can be overshadowed and burdened by the costs associated with attending Syracuse University. Every contribution counts!

What I Look Forward to as an SU Alumna

Since I will always and forever bleed orange, I am looking forward to getting involved with Lubin House initiatives and keeping engaged with all of the programs, departments and initiatives I have benefited from while at SU. I would be nothing without your support!

Gracias Jessica! Congratulations!
