Amy Wroblewski has a goal to be a leading official of a Human Resources Department. This summer she interned for American Woodmark’s Human Resources Department of Corporate Competency in Winchester, Virginia.

“The main reason I chose Purdue was Krannert,” said Wroblewski. “I fell in love with the culture there, and the faculty really wanted the students to succeed. Once I set foot in Krannert, I thought this is my place.”

Wroblewski actively participates in various HR-related organizations.  However, Delta Sigma Pi holds most of her time. She has been a member since her freshman year and has serviced as the club’s secretary, committee chair, chancellor, and senior vice president.

Wroblewski, a senior in Krannert School of Management, felt disheartened about her college experience as her student loan debt grew. With private interest rates above eight percent, both she and her parents worried about paying for school and paying back loans.

“I was sick and tired of private loans with high interest rates,” said Wroblewski. “So I grabbed The Exponent one day and I noticed the Back a Boiler article. I emailed the contact and everything started to fall into place. Its people who have faith in you. Your hard-earned money is going toward a university that is backing and has backed you. It has made me feel safer and more confident in myself and my future.”

Wroblewski encourages other Purdue students to check out the program and to use the comparison tool on the Back a Boiler website to determine future financial obligations to Back a Boiler and private or Parent PLUS programs.

“For people who don’t know what an ISA is or how it’s beneficial, check out Purdue’s website for the ISA,” said Wroblewski. “If you’re like me, first generation and taking on a lot of debt, this is definitely a great way to finance your college career. Back a Boiler lets me have a more enjoyable college career because I’m not as worried about the money as I used to be.”
