Alumnus Success: Phillip Blush ’08
Alumnus Success: Phillip Blush ’08
Phillip Blush '08
“Randolph-Macon College provided me with a well-rounded education and the skills needed to excel and adapt in an ever-changing international business environment,” says
Phillip Blush ’08
. “I also met some of my best friends at R-MC, and those relationships have helped me in all of my work experiences.”
Blush, a contracts and pricing associate for IDS International Government Services LLC, twice participated in Randolph-Macon College’s unique study-abroad program. The college’s
study/travel courses are challenging, exciting academic and intercultural experiences.
“I traveled to China during my junior year and to England during my senior year,” he says. “Both courses continue to enrich me, as much of my work centers around international military contracting.”
Students considering Randolph-Macon would do well to heed Blush’s advice.
“Take advantage of everything and anything offered,” he says. “Study-abroad courses in particular can give you new insight into your interests. Randolph-Macon offers amazing opportunities.”
