Scott Callahan

As a Barrett student, Scott Callahan says he is always challenged academically and enjoys the opportunity to attend classes taught by top notch faculty. One of the highlights of his Barrett experience was when Scott had the chance to take an economics course from a Nobel Laureate, Dr. Edward Prescott. “Dr. Prescott helped open my eyes as to how economics is used to predict the consequences of various public policies…Plus, to be taught in undergraduate school by such a notable professor is a very special and rare opportunity,” Scott said. His favorite memory at Barrett is the day when Dr. Prescott told Scott his project was “brilliant.”
