Leading a student organization and finding her passion for accounting are two things Bonnie Boos has done in her first two years at Kansas State. The sophomore from Salina, Kansas, declared her accounting major in the spring semester of 2014.
She credits her sister for introducing her to the College of Business Administration. Coming from a small high school, Sacred Heart in Salina, Boos didn’t have the opportunity to take business courses until starting at K-State. With her older sister graduating from the College of Business Administration, Boos came to Manhattan for a campus visit. On her visit she saw the passion of everyone in the college and this fueled her motivation to pursue a business major.
“The feeling of home and friendliness of K-State and Manhattan are what I enjoy the most,” said Boos. “It’s a great place to come for college and there are endless opportunities to meet new people and get involved.”
With involvement in the Beginning a Promising Profession (BAPP) Club, her sorority, Professional Advantage Advocates and being President for Cats for a Cure, Boos’ calendar stays quite full. Her advice to incoming students is to get involved early and stay organized by using a planner because there are so many things you can get involved with. “Attend the K-State activities fair to see everything that’s out there and get brochures from all tables, even if you aren’t sure you are interested in joining,” Boos said.
