Whiskey Business

Shortly after earning her MBA in Business Administration, Holly Seidewand tried her first Scotch. For Holly, the joy of whisky isn’t just its flavor; whisky offers a way to foster relationships in the business realm. She soon found a way to mix her degree with her newfound passion and began traveling the world.

The people I have met at Alfred are amazing...my two best friends/roommates that I still stay in touch with. It is such a small university and these people are like family.
