Areas of Interest at SCU and LSB: I am currently an undecided business major, however finance is likely the path I will take. I will also be pursuing a minor in business analytics in my years at SCU!
What are your SCU and LSB activities/general hobbies: Along with Leavey Ambassadors I am a part of the Latinx Business Students Association. When i'm not in the classroom I love playing intramural basketball, getting food with friends, and going to the gym. Also, my passion for music has lead me to learn how to play guitar in my first few months at SCU.
What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at LSB? I have used platforms such as Handshake to search for internship opportunities, along with attending recruiting events from companies such as Deloitte hosted by SCU. I have also utilized connections made here to assist me in the application processes. As a first year, I hope to secure an internship in the following summers.
Favorite LSB Class and Why? My favorite class at LSB would definitely be Business 70 with professor Craig Martin. Professor Martin was consistently passionate and humorous, keeping the class fun. He also brought in guest speakers with real world experience in entrepreneurship to tell their story and answer any questions students may have.
What made you choose to attend LSB? There were two primary reasons as to why I chose to attend the LSB at Santa Clara: The location and small class sizes. Being in the heart of Silicon Valley students have opportunities to enter the business world at a younger age. The combination of the LSB's reputation and location also enables students to create critical connections with peers and recruiters. With the smaller class sizes, I have felt more confident in asking questions and seeking personalized help. They have also helped me meet new people and create strong friendships.
What advice you wish you had while applying to college? When applying to schools, cast a wide net of places with different populations, locations, etc. Applying to these places does not mean you are committed to them, but you will have more options when touring and discovering what you truly want in a university. Reach out and connect with alumni and other prospective students. While one aspect of your decision is the colleges academics and campus, the community of people should have heavy emphasis placed on it. Feel it out and make a decision based on this. Finally, try not to stress. You are going to end up where you belong.
