Bob’s blog about MC Enactus:

Bethany Maczka

Hello! My name is Bethany. This is my second year at Montgomery College. I am a member of the Macklin Business Institute, the honors business program at MC. I am so fortunate to have found this incredible program, and the family of amazing people along with it - I don’t know what I would do without them!

You can oftentimes find me in the MBI Café, the student-run Starbucks next to the cafeteria. Although I only work there once a week, I stop by to help barista whenever I’m stressed out. Creating the beautiful brown-to-white ombré of an iced caramel macchiato, or drizzling caramel atop the perfect swirl of whipped cream on a Frappuccino, never fails to cheer me up. Order an iced caramel macchiato with extra caramel drizzle and there’s a good chance you’ll make my day.

I am majoring in business, but I have always had a passion for learning new languages. I first studied six years of Spanish, followed by two years of American Sign Language. I hope to continue learning both when I transfer next fall.

In my free time, I love to bake, play guitar, and hang out with friends. I easily prioritize baking above sleeping, which means if I’m up studying until midnight, I’ll be baking until 3am. We can sleep when we’re dead, right? (As a side note, bringing cupcakes to class is a great way to make friends in college!)

If MC has taught me anything, it’s that life is too short to not give everything your all. As one of my favorite professors always says, “live intentionally.” I am excited to share my journey through MC with all of you. Thanks for watching and have a great day!

  1. Thanks for this very informative vlog about these incredible programs. Not only was I impressed that MC placed 9th out of 400, but I learned something new: Those accepted into the MBI program not only get free tuition but also travel paid for. That’s pretty incredible and such an excellent opportunity. How many are accepted into the program each year?

    1. It really is a great opportunity! I think the amount selected changes, but right now there are 26 in total (both freshmen and sophomores).
