What surprised you most about Marshall?
The sense of community and camaraderie. There is always someone you can reach out to for assistance with whatever you might need. This extends beyond just people in your graduating year. Second-years and alumni create an incredible support system at Marshall as well.
What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
The amount of options that are available and how incredibly confusing those options seem. Meetings, site visits, informational interviews, club events, there are a lot of decisions to be made about how to spend your time. It's easy to feel like you have to do everything, but at the end of the day, you can't. There's no secret formula of events to get you where you want to go, but prioritizing what is important to you and not giving in to what others think you should be doing is helpful.

Favorite USC Marshall Experience:
Going to my first tailgate and football game. Despite the stifling heat and copious amount of sweat, it was a great experience. I particularly enjoyed one of our fellow ambassadors and Trojan alum, Nate, teaching us all of the USC cheers.

Why did you choose Marshall?
The Trojan community and network. As a career-switcher, I knew that I needed a strong network in order to pivot successfully. Marshall's community of professionals is unparalleled. Feeling the support from students and alumni before even enrolling at Marshall convinced me it was the right place to help me reach my goals.
