Brendan Jones

ACE Class of 2021

Why did you chose to join the ACE program?
I chose to join ACE because I wanted to be a part of a community of motivated individuals who are similarly focused, yet have different perspectives, passions, and experiences. I wanted to feel a stronger connection to my fellow classmates, and even to SCU alumni, to further growth in the understanding of myself, my university, my education, and the many possible paths I can take after I receive a Santa Clara degree. 

How has the ACE program complimented your business education?
In the long term, ACE has complimented my business education by giving me better insight to important aspects of my future career through mentoring activities such as the resume and LinkedIn workshops, career panels, and interview advice seminars. In the short-term, and personally more important, ACE has granted me with a community of fun, hardworking individuals with whom I enjoy taking classes and studying with.
