Valerie Wieman

'92 VSB

Partner, PricewaterhouseCoopers

Favorite class at VSB and why?

I don’t recall the exact name, but it was related under the Philosophy umbrella—it focused on logic and problem solving. Not only have I found the analytical aspects useful many times over, but I retained the skills because I had an amazing professor.

Most important thing you learned?

No one cares more about your career than you do—while you need lots of advisors and sponsors, in the end, you have the ball.

Favorite Villanova memory?

So many. Maybe senior week before graduation—singing along with 20 friends to a piano player at a bar in Wayne who knew all the best sing-along songs. Toasting to what we’d accomplished and intentionally avoiding even thinking about the future. Right up there is the first big snowstorm freshman year and staying up nearly all night to play in the quad with 100s of others.
