What Made You Choose to Attend USC Marshall?

I chose to Attend USC Marshall because I was admitted as an accounting major, and the accounting school was ranked as the top 5 school in the nation, and still is today. Also, when I attended the Explore USC program, I was amazed by the programs USC offered. I was also intrigued by the experiential learning center (ELC) that Marshall offers where students are recorded on their performance, and they get to see it replayed. I thought this was a unique aspect of Marshall because it gave students an opportunity to see how they act and what they can improve on. Furthermore, I always heard so many great things about the Trojan Family and the great networks that can be built at school. I heard that USC alumni are always willing to help other USC Trojans. Now, I see that this Trojan Family is real and networking is a big part of Marshall and why I enjoy it so much.

Advice you wish you had known while applying to college:

I wish I had known to not just rely on rumors or stereotypes about a school, but to actually visit the school and talk to the people there. Also, I would say to find out about the programs offered by the school, and see who can take advantage of these opportunities.

USC activities/general hobbies:

I am a director in the Asian American Business Association, part of Beta Alpha Psi, a national honorary accounting organization, and a mentor of the Global Leadership Program this fall. I enjoy trying different foods and restaurants, going on cruises, and meeting new people.

Why do you love Los Angeles?

I love Los Angeles because of its diversity in terms of the people and the food. Also, the weather is great!

Share a definitive freshman moment at USC:

My freshman year, I had the opportunity to travel to Shanghai, China during spring break through the Global Leadership Program. Not only that, I also had the opportunity to apply to an internship in China for the summer. When I received my acceptance to be an intern, I was so happy because I realized that I could take advantage of the international opportunities that Marshall is famous for. Also, I received a stipend for this internship so I realized that Marshall is willing to support me and further my development.

Favorite USC Marshall class:

My favorite USC Marshall class has been marketing because my professor brought real life examples into the classroom. Also, the group project was fun because we got to work on a real company and have the executives come to our class to talk a little bit about the company and where they see it going. We helped them with some marketing strategies and came up with some new ideas and posters. Also, he encouraged us to participate in class, which helped me be less afraid of talking in class.
