Anna Bryant, a senior at Baylor University and Hallsville native, is making the most of her time in Waco. After growing up with parents and family who attended Baylor as well, Anna’s dream was to experience it for herself – something she has certainly done since arriving on campus. From immersing herself heavily in both business studies within the university alongside her sorority sisterhood outside of class to cherishing special moments like Sing or football games during childhood visits – there’s no doubt that Anna’a time here will have been more than what she could’ve ever imagined before college began.
As a double major in management and marketing, Anna has made the most of her collegiate experience. With a fascination for business as well as leadership, Anna knew she wanted to pursue something in the university’s business school. Her journey was bolstered further by Professor Randy Hacker who served not only as a professor during Anna’s academic journey but also joined her on a study abroad trip. Anna looks up to him immensely for always putting students first and sharing important life lessons along their collective journey.
Anna had the incredible opportunity to further her education and explore Europe through the European Business Seminar Program. It was an experience she won’t soon forget.
“It was incredible to experience Europe with my peers in a way that would be impossible to recreate in the future. I am so grateful I was able to experience such a unique trip through a seamless program,” says Anna.
Anna believes it is not only this specific experiential program that gives students access to professional skills, but Baylor also offers them additional ways to learn more about their interests and abilities. During her time at Baylor, Anna kept busy building homecoming floats, participating in All University Sing, and being a part of leadership in her sorority. By exploring these various opportunities while attending Baylor, Anna believes she will be able to take what she has learned at school into future endeavors which would have otherwise gone untapped without having experienced college life to its fullest capacity.
“The opportunities at Baylor have allowed me to learn about myself and tap into my own gifts in ways that will impact the person I grow to be post-grad, and beyond,” says Anna.
At the end of her collegiate career, Anna looks forward to taking all of her experiences and applying them in a meaningful way. Her ultimate goal is to build a successful career in the marketing field. With guidance from mentors like Professor Hacker and unwavering determination, Anna will surely achieve her dreams.
