Valentine’s Day Gift

Joey Couture and Cara Grandstaff have a lot in common—not surprising considering they’ve been a couple for five years.

They’ve both showed they can handle the corporate world, successfully completing internships with General Electric’s Financial Management Program.

They’ve both gained unique, global perspectives through their amazing study abroad experiences at Universidad Antonio de Nebrija in Madrid.

They’ve both showed their desire to give back to their fellow students by helping them obtain professional internships through their work as Career & Academic Peer Mentors.

And, most importantly, they both love UF and the Warrington College of Business for the opportunities they’ve been provided.

That’s why love is the theme of our next installment of Warrington Stories, an appropriate topic with Valentine’s Day fast approaching.

Joey and Cara’s journey is what the College hopes for all of its students. They maximized every opportunity allotted to them, and have emerged as skilled, innovative and ethical leaders.

While their classroom instruction was important, their experiences with the College’s experiential learning programs were pivotal to their personal and professional growth. Study abroad, international case competitions, peer-to-peer counseling and leadership initiatives among other programs provide Warrington students a diverse educational experience that remains with them long after graduation.

It is these important programs that the College is asking Warrington alumni to support. Private giving supplies a significant portion of the funding for these programs, which helps differentiate the College among the competition. It is these programs that attract the best students in the state and the nation, and positions Warrington as a true leader in business education.
