Andrew Carl earned a Bachelor of Arts in Management at Benedictine in 2011 after completing his general education at a local community college. Carl enjoys watching Chicago sports, hanging out with his wife and family, and occasionally indulging in some video games.

"One of my favorite things about the University is the openness and diversity of the community. All walks of life and ways of thinking are represented and respected. This serves to strengthen our academic and social environment as a whole. My two favorite buildings on campus are the Coal Ben and the Rice Fitness Center. You can fuel up at one location and burn it off at the other!

"As cliché as it sounds, the best advice I received as a student was to take control of my own destiny. True motivation to succeed must first come from inside."
