Studying marketing at USC Aiken was a rewarding experience. The emphasis on real-life application prompted me to look for creative ways to solve problems, whether it is increasing awareness of a product or service, or strengthening a company's reputation and credibility. I’m now working in public relations and pursuing a MBA. I’m grateful for the opportunities SOBA afforded me and the wonderful faculty and staff I met along the way.
