The College of Business stresses that students should stay focused on academics, grow as professionals, and do more than simply take in information.  It is evident that Ben Gasparini has paid close attention to these messages.

Gasparini excels in the classroom, where he maintains a high GPA and tutors fellow students.  He is a member of Beta Alpha Psi, an international accounting honor society, where he works on fundraising events and takes part in the group-led service activities.

Gasparini is also a member of the International Business Board and he played a key role in planning the group’s statewide summit for students studying international business.  In addition, Gasparini recently helped establish a new social fraternity on campus, Pi Kappa Phi, leading this fraternity in a philanthropic project to assist people with disabilities.

A former Bulls Business Community resident, Gasparini served as a mentor to new residents during his second year in the hall.  He also spent the summer with fellow BBCers on a study abroad program (his first time outside of the U.S.).

Gasparini was recently offered an internship position with Goldman Sachs in New York City; the Goldman Sachs program is a prestigious, nationally competitive internship program.
