Annual Report

Chris Tan ’18

Observe. Orient. Decide. Act. Four words that train wrestlers to think fast on their feet, to execute decisions with purpose and to constantly re-evaluate and adjust. That’s what it takes to become Centennial Conference Wrestling Scholar-Athlete of the Year and conference champion in the 125-pound weight class. But those words don’t only apply to the wrestling mat; they’re Chris Tan’s secret for the classroom, too. It’s how he effortlessly excels as both scholar and athlete. It’s how he led a team of peers to the grand prize at the Rochester University Simon Business School’s Early Leaders Case Competition, which is designed to simulate real-world decisions faced by business leaders around the globe. “The winner of a match is usually determined by the competitor who not only works and prepares harder, but who can adapt and readjust the fastest. Your ability to think and adapt quickly can give you an advantage.”
