At just 16 years old, finance major Chris Nguyen ’16 left his home and family in Vietnam to pursue his college education in the United States. At Saint Joseph’s University, he excelled in the classroom and connected with fellow classmates over music, joining the newly founded campus singing group, Hawks on Pointe. He also took advantage of opportunities to network with HSB alumni through the SJU Career Center and alumni programs, through which he garnered advice and internships. In the summer of 2015, Chris completed a three-month internship at Carver Federal Savings Bank in New York City and was offered a full-time position.
