What Made You Choose to Attend USC Marshall?

I had one main requirement when selecting a business school – I did not want to a statistic. I searched high and low for a school that offered me opportunities for legitimate leadership and real-world experience. USC Marshall presented me with valuable leadership prospects through the Global Leadership Program and specialized attention from influential faculty members like Dean Ellis. At Marshall, I am not a number – I am an asset.

Advice you wish you had known while applying to college:

Be picky! You should be scrutinizing your college choices just as closely as they are scrutinizing you. Look for the university that best fits your specific needs and be demanding in your expectations.

USC activities/general hobbies:

USC German Club, former USC Women’s Rower, Global Leadership Program Mentor, Thematic Option, Resident Honors Program, public speaking, lifeguarding, writing, swimming

Why do you love Los Angeles?

As an avid people-watcher, Los Angeles is prime territory for learning through observation. With so many interesting and diverse people, Los Angeles is the perfect place to hone public relations skills and better understand the intricacies of human behavior.

Share a definitive freshman moment at USC:

As a Freshman at USC, the single most definitive moment for me was meeting Dean Ellis. As a member of the Global Leadership Program, I still remember watching Dean Ellis walk into class for the first time – dressed to the nines in his business professional attire and greeting each of the students individually with a smile.

Favorite USC Marshall class:

The Global Leadership Program has by far been my favorite USC Marshall class. The GLP experience is simply unparalleled – what other class allows you to establish a relationship with the dean, hone your leadership skills, and travel to China for 10 days?
