What Made You Choose to Attend USC Marshall?

The thing that made the Marshall School of Business stand out during my first semester at USC was the school’s drive to give students hands on experience with the concepts they have been learning in class via the Experiential Learning Center and other programs. Furthermore, I was very intrigued by Marshall’s focus on giving students a strong global perspective through numerous study abroad programs. Lastly, the Marshall curriculum has the flexibility to allow me to complement my major with a minor in another field of interest outside of business, which for me has been music.

Advice you wish you had known while applying to college:

When you are applying to schools and deciding which institution you are going to attend after your senior year of high school, don’t get too caught up with the academic prowess of schools and the misguiding notion of top tier schools. This is the time for you to branch out as an individual and look at schools that will not only benefit your academic interest, but also give you a good challenge in all aspects of college life. Try to escape the academic rankings of schools and focus more on the location, the campus life, and whether or not the school satisfies your interests both inside and outside of the classroom. If you find yourself stuck between two schools, the last question you should ask yourself is which college or university would you be most proud to say you attend.

Why do you love Los Angeles?

The people, the weather, the entertainment culture, the thriving music scene, the city’s close proximity to the beach, the local mountains and the delicious dining options. Share a definitive freshman moment at USC: The most definitive moment of my freshman year at USC was having the opportunity to travel to China with my Global Leadership Class. Touring businesses, bartering with local vendors, experiencing foreign nightlife and getting to do all of this with some of my closest friends at USC was something I will never forget.

Share a definitive freshman moment at USC:

One of the most definitive moments of my freshman year was my trip with my GLP class to Shanghai, China during spring break. Before China, I had only travelled outside of the US one time and it was to Costa Rica so my GLP trip was a very different experience for me. Not only did I get to experience the Chinese culture firsthand, but I also was able to visit many major companies in Shanghai and learn about the different style of doing business in the Asian countries. Whether you are a part of GLP or LINC, I strongly recommend that you go abroad with the Marshall School of Business your freshman year.
