What surprised you most about Marshall?
The biggest surprise for me was how fast it all goes by. It feels like I just started by MBA but we are already almost done with our third term. With classes, club activities, training sessions over the weekend, case comps, coffee chats, and volunteering, time goes by so fast.

What do you wish you'd known before attending business school?
I wish I knew how little time I had to take care of little things. I moved to LA two weeks before the orientation, thinking I would have enough time to find a place/furniture shop/unpack. But once the school started, I barely had time to do anything after school. So prepare everything you can ahead of time!

What leadership positions do you hold at Marshall?
Assistant VP of External Relations, Marshall Energy Club; MBA Ambassador

Favorite USC Marshall Experience:
TAM Day during orientation! TAM Day was when our core classes got together for the first time after being assigned in the same core. We played various fun team building games including crossword puzzles, water balloon toss, and egg drop. But it's been my favorite USC Marshall experience mostly because Core C won!!!

Favorite USC Marshall Core Class:
Contemporary Issues in Competitive Strategy
