Where Exceptional Begins

Courtney Reese '15

Hometown: Cleveland, OH

Major: Marketing

Interests: Running, eating ice cream and going to the movies

Hi everybody! I’m Courtney Reese and I am a junior at the University of Mount Union. Born and raised in a big city such as Cleveland, it’s pretty odd that I would choose a small private institution as Mount Union, but honestly I would not have had it any other way.

With a major in marketing and minor in psychology, I plan on working in the business industry focusing on advertising. Outside of the classroom, I am involved with American Marketing Association (AMA) and also an All-American student athlete on the track team. I spend a lot of my time working on campus (Call Center and Office of Marketing), working out, attending AMA meetings and events and of course, studying. Sounds like a lot huh? I know that with good time management skills I can handle it. My goal for this year is to make the Dean’s List and to make it to the NCAA National Track Meet. Gotta set your goals high!

In my free time, a few of my favorite things to do are hanging out with my friends, ordering from restaurants and tuning in on the latest reality TV shows. There’s a lot that goes on in my life that I would love to share with you guys. I’ll keep you all updated on the experiences to come.
