Kyle Turnier is an Honors College senior from Waterford, Connecticut, who knows the importance of mastering time management skills to achieve academic excellence and the complete college experience. As a Finance major with a Psychology minor, he has exposed himself to very different spectrums of academics during his four years at Pace.
In addition to experiencing the full realm of learning, Kyle made himself a more well-rounded student through athletics. He has been a member of the Setter’s baseball team for four years. Being a successful student athlete requires a great understanding of time management, in order to complete all course requirements, while maintaining team practices and game schedules. Some of Kyle’s best memories of Pace University include making lasting friendships and memories with his teammates.
He also recognizes that, as a member of the Honors College, his coursework was significantly more challenging but definitely worth it. Kyle advocates what many Honors alumni say: Having the prestige of the “Pforzheimer Honors College” on a college transcript works wonders in job and internship interviews. Another reason he feels he benefitted from the Honors College are the many community service opportunities he had participated in during his time at Pace. Some of his favorite Honors events include the “Honors Open Meeting,” “Volunteer for the Westchester Food Bank” Presentation, “Wrapping Gifts for Underprivileged Children” and the annual, “Hunger Banquet.” Some of Kyle’s favorite professors include Dr. Russell, Professor Weishaus, and Professor Walther, all of whom he highly recommends.
When asked about his advice for incoming students and first-year students he says, “Remember to stay on top of your work early on in the semester. This will help you make the most of your four years here.” Kyle’s post-graduation plans focus on acquiring a long-term position in the financial industry. We wish him the best of luck in his final year at Pace and his future financial endeavors.
