Joe Zamadics ’12
West Chester, Pa. | West Chester East High School
Minor: Political Science
Clubs/Activities: Cross Country Team, Track Teams, WQSU-FM DJ
Post-Graduation Plans: Still weighing options. I will possibly attend law school and study anti-trust law.
Meaningful faculty connection: The late Dr. Blessing has left a lasting impact on my academic career. The two political science courses I had with him allowed me to learn from the best, and the courses shaped me into a more responsible student and person. Dr. Blessing demanded perfection in every reading, test and assignment. My work will be better because of him for the rest of my life.
The most exciting thing about studying economics at Susquehanna: Many of the professors in the SU economics department are not of American birth. This truly gives students international view of economics. The international perspective allows me to interpret data from a non-biased view point.
Amanda Bittner ’12
Kempton, Pa. | Northwestern Lehigh High School
Majors: Mathematics, Economics
Clubs/Activities: Women's Rugby Club, Math Club, Senior Friends
Post-Graduation Plans: Graduate school
Favorite class: Game Theory is my favorite class, because you can apply the concepts to everyday life. The concepts can be used to analyze everyday activities people do because those everyday activities/decisions can be made into games and we can figure out their best option for success.
Biggest academic challenge: Balancing two majors and being involved in sports. Because I am a dual major, I have to figure when to take certain classes as well as when to overload. I have learned to manage my time wisely by making lists of what needs to get done for the day and for the week.
