Involvement Recommendation: One of my favorite groups during my first-year at SCU was CHAARG, a club for women at SCU focused on health and fitness as well as building a strong social network of friends. I recommend it to any incoming women as I have met some of my best friends through it!
Favorite Class: By far my favorite class I have taken at SCU was actually one of the first ones I ever took: Ethics in Business, MGMT 6. Learning about business through a lens of environmental and corporate social responsibility completely changed the way I see the world around me, and it is the reason why I will be working with the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics on diversity and inclusion projects this upcoming school year!
Advice for First-Years: Be confident in your ability to achieve your goals, and even do things beyond them! SCU is constantly rooting for you and is going to provide you with all the tools to fuel your success, but you have to believe in yourself too!
