Small classes; right history; no boundaries...

Jason Halberstadt '14


My experience with the History Department at Elizabethtown College prepared me well for my current job in the business world. I work for Bernstein Management Corporation in Washington, D.C., and assist in the day-to-day administration of a fashionable apartment building. The skills and work ethic I learned during my time at Elizabethtown College have been immensely beneficial to my new career. In particular, the writing skills that I developed as a History major are something I utilize on a regular basis. Furthermore, the History Department fostered my ability to think critically and communicate in an articulate and professional manner, valuable skills that are applicable in any discipline or career. I am very grateful to the History Department at Elizabethtown College, especially Dr. Newsome, who set a fine example of professionalism and hard work.
