    About Stephane
  • Kayla Guyton

    I knew that I wanted to be a business major, but there is such a variety of fields to choose from. Therefore, I struggled with what area to choose, and I am still learning more about what I want to do everyday! It has helped me to speak with my friends and professors about their opinions. My friends know me on a personal level, and my professors know how I perform in class. Therefore, they have been able to guide me and give me advice.
