Jacob West, Business Opportunities LCC
Welcome… I’m your LCC Jacob West
I am so excited to meet you the fall. I will be a resource for you as you navigate through your first year of college here at Minnesota State University, Mankato! Being involved with the Business Opportunities learning community will help you academically as well as socially, so utilize me and your peers as much as you can.
Major: Business Management, with a minor in entrepreneurship and innovation.
How/what made you decide this major? I choose this major because it’s a wide variety of jobs and career paths I could explore out of college. I love working with math and working with people, so I hope to find a career that blends both.
Year in School: Sophomore
Hometown: Cottage Grove, MN
Favorite Food: Fettucine alfredo
Advice for LC Students: Prioritizing, making sure to be able to balance academic life and social life. School is very important but also meeting new people and making friends is important.
The smartest thing you ever did/best decision you ever made: The best decision I have ever made was become more communicative and building those communication/ listening skills.
Favorite thing about MSU: I love how you meet new people every week.
Campus/LC Involvement: I was a former member of the Business LC 1 community when I was a freshman and will continue to be in a LC group as a sophomore as well as lead a LC group.
Favorite thing to do in Mankato: I loved to go play volleyball/ adventure on nearby parks and trails when it was warm with my friends.
Favorite things to do outside of school/coursework: I love to work out, watch movies/shows with my friend and play any sport.
