About Jake

My name is Jake, I am a junior at the one and only University of Northern Colorado. I am a Business major with a Marketing emphasis. I was born and raised here in Colorado, and I am currently living in Parker, Colorado. I have never lived anywhere else permanently, but I have temporarily lived in places due to my dad’s job. I originally did not want to come to UNC because both my parents graduated from here and I wanted to make my own path somewhere else; however, after my first year at Hastings College in Nebraska, I decided it was not the place for me and looked to transfer somewhere else. UNC stood out like no other campus did; I felt comfortable here and was very excited to transfer and start a new journey. I am involved in the club tennis team, DSP (Delta Sigma Pi- Professional Business Fraternity), and the student ambassador program! After college, I want to work in financial planning and insurance sales with Northwestern Mutual. After a few years in the professional field, I definitely want to pursue an MBA to set myself apart from my peers.

 3 Facts

1. My favorite activities are playing tennis, skiing, and hunting--the 3 best things to do in colorado by far.
2. I grew up playing lacrosse and it is my favorite sport to watch.
3. I have about a million food allergies--I'm more of a liability than anything.

Favorite Place on Campus

Kepner Hall. The business building is my second home; it is my favorite place to study and to attend classes.

Advice to Prospective Students

Get out of your room! College is only a good experience if you force yourself to meet new people and get involved in activities and organizations on campus.
