Eight students from Butler University’s Lacy School of Business recently went on the university’s annual Wall Street Trek, which allows current Butler students to tour banking and finance institutions in the city and network with Butler alumni.
 
“The trip had quite a significant impact on me,” sophomore Will Willoughby said. “After seeing all of the different financial positions, and their significance to every company we went to, I knew when I left New York that finance and banking was what I wanted to do.”
 
This year, the students met with Butler alumni in prominent positions on Wall Street at JPMorgan Chase, the Stock Exchange and Blue Mountain Capital, and at Johnson & Johnson’s headquarters in New Brunswick, New Jersey.
 
“This is one of the best parts of my job — to be able to match students up and show them what a day in the life really looks like and to expose them to different opportunities,” Lacy School of Business Director of Career Development Kim Goad, one of the trip chaperones, said. “A comment I often get about Butler students is that they are very polished but not robotic. They kept the conversation alive in every meeting that we had, yet they were still students and fun and relatable.”
