"I've made lifelong friends at Lubin. As President of the Lubin Graduate Society, I've been part of an active group of students who socialize outside of class, support each other, and share their experiences and connections in the field. At Lubin, you don't need to sacrifice a sense of community to get a great business education. Ultimately, business is about people, and Lubin is about its students."
