My name is Ryan Kelley. I was born and raised in suburban Washington, D.C., where my parents work in the restaurant and hospitality business. My family is originally from Chicago, which inspired me to find a business school in the Chicago area. Among other things, I quickly fell in love with the Jesuit traditions of generosity and social responsibility that are deeply rooted in the culture of Loyola University and the Quinlan School of Business. Since arriving here, I have been elected as a senator for Loyola’s Unified Student Government Association, in addition to participating as a member of the Loyola Student Objectivist Society and several other campus organizations.
