Dear Findlay: A Letter to Everyone I’ve Known the Past 4 Years

Posted by Delaney Haas in Delaney Haas. No Comments

10th May

Dear Findlay (and everyone affiliated),

August 2014, was the beginning of my senior year of high school. For most of my classmates, that meant preparing for homecoming, getting senior pictures, and taking the ACT to prep for college. For me, the beginning of senior year meant taking a huge risk by going full time to the University of Findlay. I was scared and nervous, because no one from my high school ever left early to go full time to college, no less a college that was an hour away. Would I feel welcomed by the students? Would faculty and staff take me seriously? Would I feel alone by taking the risk of bypassing senior year of high school?

From the first day of my college experience at Findlay as a high school senior, I immediately felt at home. I was surrounded by faculty … Read More »



Practical Magic: How Marathon Petroleum Corporation Fuels Experiential Learning

Posted by Delaney Haas in Delaney Haas. No Comments

13th October

At this time last year, I stepped outside my comfort zone and accepted an internship with Brand Marketing at Marathon Petroleum Corporation (MPC) for spring 2017. While nervous at first, the four months’ experience I gained was invaluable.

Here are six reasons why you should consider doing an internship during the school year (especially with MPC):

You have so many opportunities — Many companies offer internships year round, meaning there are opportunities for students to fill in during the school year. Also, because most students believe that internships are only meant to be taken in the summer, there is much less competition for getting positions.
You get to do fun stuff — A semester spent at college means exams, projects and papers nonstop. My semester spent at MPC meant traveling to places such as Fort Wayne, Ann Arbor, Indianapolis and Columbus learning about marketing the … Read More »



Push Yourself to the (Browns) Edge

26th September

Is there a day that you can honestly say changed your life? A day that impacted your education, career and social life?

Mine was on Wednesday, Sept. 2, 2015, at the inaugural Cleveland Browns Edge Summit at the University of Findlay. I was barely into sophomore year and had not really stepped outside my comfort zone. I attended the summit and decided to take advantage of the opportunity to network with members of the Cleveland Browns sales, partnerships, and fan experience departments. People talk about the power of networking, but I never knew that it would impact the rest of my life.

One of the Browns staff members reached out to me a couple of weeks after the summit asking if I was interested in volunteering on game day for the upcoming season. I accepted the offer and was soon told I … Read More »



New year, new building!

21st August

The start of a new school year has always been an exciting time for me, but this year there was even more excitement because it’s my senior year and I’ll get to enjoy the new Center for Student Life and College of Business building. As a marketing major, I’m anxious to learn in its innovative classrooms and learning spaces, and as a student, I’m beyond happy that we now have an amazing place to relax, study and eat on campus.

The second story of the new building, home to the College of Business, has grand auditoriums, classrooms and conference rooms, and the interior designer wasn’t afraid of Oiler Orange! There are also two learning commons on the second floor that will be great places to collaborate on projects and study.

One of the things that I’m most excited about is the Big … Read More »



Getting Down to Business

For those who do not know, I am a Business Management and Marketing major. Choosing a college was difficult for me, since business is such a broad major that is very common at most colleges. At first I was nervous to pursue Findlay’s business program since it isn’t one of UF’s niche majors. By now I know how completely mistaken I was in thinking this! The professors are outstanding, classes are challenging yet rewarding, and every opportunity for success is available to me. It does not matter how well known a program is at a college. Students need to understand that if they put themselves out there and work hard, success will come no matter what college they attend. I am loving what I do and am so confident about my career decision.
