Hello! I'm Madelyn and I am from a small town in Iowa called Farmersburg. I am currently studying advertising, marketing and graphic design and am preparing to enter my senior year! On campus, I am actively involved in DU Ad Club, American Marketing Association, and my sorority. Next year, I will serve as the President of DU Ad Club, Vice President of AMA and the senior Recruitment Captain for my sorority.
I originally decided on Drake because I wanted my professors to know my name. I grew up in a small town, so this was important to me. I've had great opportunities because I made an effort to know my professors and get involved in organizations. My advisor provided a great recommendation for me, helping me get an internship at an agency in Minneapolis for the summer. Last spring, for the AMA annual project I was able to present a new marketing plan with my peers to some of the top executives for Dasani Water. Now being in my last year of college, I could not be happier to call myself a Drake Bulldog.
Getting involved in Fraternity and Sorority Life really enhanced my time in college. From my experience I have not only met my best friends through my chapter, but supported so many different philanthropies and great causes.
My sorority was one of the best decisions I could have made because I am constantly surrounded by women who are always challenging themselves and are incredible role models. It has allowed me to be more confident in leadership positions, exceed in scholarship goals and make amazing, lasting connections with other women.
