Pascal MarcktellPascal Marcktell '22 - EC PAC Captain

Major: Economics

Minor: Statistics

About me: I am an economics major and a member of the Skidmore Baseball team. I am from Queens, New York, and love living and working in a fast-paced city setting.

Why PAC: I wanted to be a PAC because I was always interested in education. I like helping classmates and siblings study and learn about topics from class.

Favorite class and why: Microeconomic Theory was my favorite class because it challenged me. It provided me with a new, deeper way of thinking about the economy.

Academic advice: I would advise students to stay organized, take good notes while paying attention in class, and space out schoolwork so it doesn’t pile up.

Majors: Economics and Business  Maddie

About me: I am from New Jersey and a member of the Skidmore Field Hockey team. I love the beach, coffee, and playing with my yellow lab, Milo. I also love music and listen to just about any genre from classical to country to Broadway.  

Why PAC: I have played sports for as long and I can remember and have been a part of many teams. As I grew up, I started to coach and teach the sports I love to other people, and it was really fulfilling to see each of them understand a new or difficult technique. Similar to this experience, in PAC, I am able to coach and teach something I love to others and gain that same satisfaction when the student understands a concept.  

Favorite class and why: I really enjoyed microeconomic theory. I found it interesting to take information learned in intro micro and understand where it comes from such as how a demand curve is formed and then forming it yourself.  

Academic advice: I think it is important to schedule your time. When exams and homework pile up it is easy to feel overwhelmed, but creating a schedule of when you will work on each assignment can be very helpful. To do lists can also be helpful.
