I work in Locatelli Activities Center as a graphic designer. I've also gotten both of my internships through SCU alumni at CrowdStrike (summer after sophomore year) and BlackRock (summer after junior year)

Favorite LSB class. Why?
OMIS 105 - Database Management Systems. Professor Zimbra challenged me to think critically and innovate solutions to business issues.

Proximity to opportunities in the Bay Area, a good business school overall

What advice you wish you had while applying to college?
Don't be afraid to try everything!! Not sure if you'd be good at it or if it's your thing? Try it anyway!
