Safety Tips for Halloween

Walk Safely

Cross the street at corners, using traffic signals and crosswalks.

Look left, right and left again when crossing and keep looking as you cross.

Put electronic devices down and keep heads up and walk, don’t run, across the street.

Teach children to make eye contact with drivers before crossing in front of them.

Hometown Girl, Taylor McCoy, Lands a Future with Finance

Taylor McCoy, ’18, chose finance on whim. That quick decision made during Orientation before starting her freshman year set in motion a string of chance encounters leading to her position at a Fortune 500 company today.

“I was a little nervous about my choice at first because I wasn’t sure what to expect, and I wouldn’t take any finance courses until my junior year,” explained McCoy. “But, I got into that first very finance class and immediately knew I made the right choice.”

To McCoy, finance was “fun math,” and she loved the idea of using math to help people and companies. She was able to hone her financial skills in Ray’s Financial Trading Room—an experience she noted was not a class, but a job. McCoy was part of the first cohort to utilize the Trading Room’s advanced technology to plan the initial investment from the Student Managed Investment Fund (SMIF).
