NeW Spotlight: Bridget Schoffman, Florida Gulf Coast University (FGCU)

What is your major at FGCU? Finance

What would you like to do after graduation? After graduation, I plan on working towards an MBA. This may be immediate or after a few years of work experience. I want to pursue a career in corporate finance. I also have interests in other areas of finance, banking, and investing.

How did you hear about NeW? I went to an involvement fair on campus and I saw the iconic pink table. I joined a lot of clubs that semester, but many were soon divested because I got nothing out of them. NeW was at the top of my list of clubs because I always learned something that strengthened my beliefs.

Why are you conservative? I am a conservative because I believe in equal opportunity, not equal outcome. I am a firm believer in the American dream and hard work. Along with personal morals, dedication and hard work allow us to create a better life. I am for small business and capitalism. I am blessed to live in a country with these freedoms. I respect and honor our country, especially those serving in our military.

What are you looking forward to the most as a member of New at FGCU? I have been reaching out to others on campus about NeW. I am looking forward to growing our chapter and finding students with a desire to develop his or her values.
