Susan (Alexander) Anderson

Year Graduated: 2007

First Job: Four, Llc. Currently working for a women owned 8(a) software reseller in Northern Virginia as a financial analyst

Favorite Course:

Discrete Math was the first class at UMW that taught me “math outside the box,” a different way at looking at numbers, and prepared me for what was to come.

Memorable Experiences in the Classroom:

Dr. Mellinger helped me through my four years at UMW. Not only was he my adivsor, he encouraged me to take ownership of my major by becoming President of Mary Washington’s MAA chapter. I’ll also never forget Dr. Chiang throwing chalk in Topology.

Memorable Experiences Outside the Classroom:

Pi day outside of Trinkle Hall serving pie to students and faculty and getting an internship with Edward Jones which started my career in the financial industry.

Why Should Somebody Study Mathematics at UMW?

UMW’s math professors, although challenging, really knew how to stretch my strengths as a student and not become discouraged.
