Transferred Trojans

Are you considering transferring to USC Marshall but are nervous about the transfer experience? Don't fret! I transferred to Marshall last year from a community college. I remember being especially nervous about making friends and the Marshall courses. 

My first year at USC Marshall, I lived in off-campus housing with my suite mates - other transfer students! We became part of the USC Marshall community through attending football games and getting involved in clubs. My fall semester, I took part in Marshall Business Network, a club meant to help incoming students network with other Trojans and learn from industry leaders. 

The transition to Marshall's courses was also smooth. While my classes were more difficult than the business classes that I took in community college, the professors and teaching assistants were especially helpful. For example, my BUAD 307 (Marketing Fundamentals) professor met with me multiple times outside of class helping me prepare for presentations and study for exams. She even wrote me a letter of recommendation that helped me land my internship last summer!

If you are thinking about applying to USC as a transfer student, know that there are many resources on campus to help you start your journey with your new Trojan Family!

Fight On!
