Victoria Castagna, a senior from Ft. Lauderdale majoring in investment management and minoring in international business management, has finally discovered her true place after transferring to Lynn as a sophomore.
Castagna began her freshman year of college in Rome, Italy, at John Cabot University. While studying there, she loved touring the various museums, visiting architectural buildings, trying authentic Italian food and visiting the famous monuments. After studying in Rome for six months though, Castagna chose to transfer due to the yearning of her friends and family.
“Studying in Rome was still an incredible experience,” said Castagna. “I loved how every day consisted of something new.”
After transferring from John Cabot University, she began studying at The King’s College in Manhattan, N.Y. After studying there for an entire year, Castagna chose once again to transfer due to overwhelming stress levels she experienced. Though discouraged, she would tour Lynn soon after, fall in love with the global student body and decide to enroll.
“I love having friends from all over the world because I love learning about different cultures,” said Castagna.
Since establishing her roots in Boca Raton, Castagna has been involved on campus through her role with the Indian Society. Serving as the club’s treasurer, she has the honor to promote its mission of sharing the culture of India with the Lynn community via the numerous events hosted throughout the school year.
“Being a member of the Indian Society has been so much fun with all of our events,” she said. “In fact, we [the Indian Society] are currently planning a pool party that will be catered by Bombay Café.”
Set to graduate in May, Castagna was recently accepted into the University of Miami’s graduate school, where she plans to pursue her M.B.A. After receiving her master’s degree, she hopes to continue her education by attending law school.
