Feature Friday: Andrew Ulland

It's time for another Feature Friday! As a follow-up to last week's post, this week I'm highlighting Megan's husband, Andrew Ulland! Andrew is a former Football player at Carleton College. Andrew was a Captain of the football team, as well as Vice President of the Academic Quiz Team! Before entering college, Andrew was a National Merit Scholar, and graduated from Carleton Cum Laude. Andrew went on to earn a MBA from Tuck School of Business at Dartmouth College and is now an Equity Investor. Here are some nuggets of what he got out of his collegiate athletic experience!
