You could say I was a Trojan from birth
I was born in a USC hospital and raised in Los Angeles, so you could say I was destined to be a Trojan.
When I hit junior year of high school, I started narrowing down my college choices by academics, extra curriculars, sports and activities, social life, location – basically the average high schooler’s criteria. I went on a short college trip before applications were due in my senior year, just to make sure I knew what I was signing up for. (As you can see, I was one of those crazy seniors who kept her AP Calc homework in her carry-on.)
What really helped me pick my top three schools, though, was their ranking when it came to their undergraduate business programs. As it turned out, not only was Marshall in the top ten, but it offered international programs to freshmen. To freshmen. This got me pretty excited. How many universities do you know let freshmen travel and even intern abroad through affiliated programs? I’m not going to lie, the decision was tough, but after spending the last few years here, I know I made the right choice.
