Areas of Interest at SCU and LSB: I am a Management Major with a double minor in Entrepreneurship and French. I am very interested in the food space as well as the health and wellness world, so it has been exciting to explore the on-campus opportunities in these fields.
What are your SCU and LSB activities/general hobbies: This school year 22-23 I will be the President of CHAARG, which is a national club focused on health and wellness for college girls. This club has been an incredible experience so far for me to meet other girls with similar passions and values, and I am excited to step into this leadership role to connect further with the SCU community and engage in topics I'm passionate about. I am also involved in the Delta Gamma Sorority, am a French Studies Peer Educator/Teaching Assistant, as well as a member Women in Business. As a Leavey Ambassador, my favorite experiences so far have been my one on one meetings with prospective students - I love having them pick my brain on all things LSB and SCU.
What internship/employment opportunities have you taken advantage of at LSB? During the online career fair I met with a food and beverage company and was able to discuss what careers look like in beverage sales and what opportunities are available for SCU students specifically. I ended up connecting with the recruiter and I'll keep them in mind when looking for internships next summer!
Favorite LSB Class and Why? My favorite class so far has been MGMT 6, Business Ethics. I took it with Professor Santoro and really enjoyed the content of the class - we discussed different cases from Facebook and Google and what decisions were made when they were going through ethical dilemmas within their companies. I'm a Management major, so this was my first taste of an MGMT class, which was amazing!
What made you choose to attend LSB? I went to a small high school with just 45 students in my graduating class. This unique and small school lead me to decide on attending a school with a more intimate learning environment. I knew I wanted a school in California, and SCU LSB's high caliber faculty and average class size of 25 students was extremely appealing to me. LSB's additional resources for internship opportunities and overall care for the student were the cherries on top of my college decision process.
What advice you wish you had while applying to college? When I was a high school senior, the talk of the town was who was going to which prestigious school, which person got into the lowest acceptance rate school, and that sort of thing. It's really easy to fall into that conversation of wanting to go to a very difficult school despite if it fits you as a student or not. The best advice I can give is to choose a school based on the programs and resources they provide to support the students, and what kind of academic and social environment you want to be in - not based on acceptance rate or your peers' opinions.
