Why I believe in the Center: 

During my time as a consultant of the Ernst & Young Communication Center at Michigan State University, I enjoyed working with students in one-on-one and small group settings where I can build a trusting relationship with them and offer personalized feedback. As communication is a reiterative process, the personalized feedback can help students identify their areas of improvement more precisely and motivate them to continuously strive for the next level of excellence.
