Michelle Burghardt

Michelle Burghardt loves the fact that she’s not just a number at Armstrong.

“I chose Armstrong because it combined all the elements I was looking for in a college:  small class sizes and an affordable but excellent education, all in the perfect setting of Savannah, a charming Southern city with rich history and proximity to the beach,” she explains.

The Economics major is impressed that professors know her by name and are genuinely interested in helping her achieve her goals. Since enrolling at Armstrong, Michelle has landed prestigious internships – and golden networking opportunities – with Mercedes in Berlin and the World Trade Center in Savannah.

She’s a member of the International Student Organization and a graduate of the Nick Mamalakis Emerging Leaders Program. Michelle currently serves as a research assistant for Armstrong’s Economic Monitor, gathering important data about the latest economic trends affecting the Savannah area.

Her Armstrong experience? Personal, professional and priceless.
