Devon Koning, Drumline

Devon KoningDevon is currently the snare drum section leader of MSU’s┬ádrumline.

1) Why did you choose MSU?
I chose MSU because both my father and older brother graduated from MSU, and had nothing but positive words to say about the university. MSU to me has the perfect balance between strong academics, athletics, and traditions.

2) Why did you choose supply chain
After speaking with professors and industry professionals, I was very interested in the study of supply chain management. The act of improving the efficiency and ultimate profitability of a corporation is very intriguing to me.

3) How do you balance drumline and school?
Being in the Spartan Marching Band and maintaining your focus in classes is a tough balancing act. I owe most of my success to staying organized and managing my time efficiently throughout each day.

4) What have you heard about any professors in the department?
While I have not heard specific acknowledgements of professors, I have heard that the department faculty is first class, and the ranking of the program at MSU is a testament to that strong reputation.

5) What’s your favorite discipline of supply chain and why?
After being amazed upon taking a tour of a major corporation’s distribution center last summer, I would have to say that operations is my preferred area of study. That being said, I am excited to see where my studies here at Michigan State lead my ambitions.
