portrait of Elizabeth Blemings

Student Profile: Elizabeth Blemings

From leading and founding clubs to interning to managing investment funds, this double-major senior in Finance and Economics does it all. Elizabeth Blemings bleeds gold and blue and represents what the John Chambers College of Business and Economics is all about.

Elizabeth is a part of the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF), a fund run by a team of student analysists who manage real money and discuss markets in real time. The team goes to New York City each semester, connecting with WVU alumni in industry and to meet with different financial institutions.
