What Made You Choose to Attend USC Marshall?

I was very impressed with the flexibility of Marshall’s curriculum. When I visited the campus, every business student I met was not just business majors but double majors/minors in other fields of study. Once I found out about the Business in Cinematic Arts program through Marshall, my final decision was made.

Advice you wish you had known while applying to college: I wish I knew how much current undergraduate students were willing to help high school seniors in answering their questions for the college application process. Looking back I didn’t take advantage (or know) of Marshall Student Ambassadors involvement with high school seniors and wish I did.

USC activities/general hobbies: Movies and TV, Acting, Public Speaking, Tennis, Soccer, BCA Mentor, Interfraternity Council, Internships

Why do you love Los Angeles?

Los Angeles is the hot spot of a variety of industries, local businesses, and culture. There is always so much going on around campus and there is always something new to do in this city.

Favorite USC Marshall class:

My favorite class has been Business Communications. I had an incredibly valuable experience where I learned so much about improving presentational skills, job interview preparation, and accomplishing career goal objectives. I would not be where I am today if it wasn’t for this class.
