Why did you choose Booth? The school’s quantitative approach to marketing, its flexible curriculum, which allowed me to carve out my own path, and the exposure and access to a larger university.
Favorite class? I really enjoyed Strategy & Structure taught by Elizabeth Pontikes.
Favorite trip taken with fellow Boothies? Tie between Random Walk Guatemala and a girl’s trip to Charleston/Savannah
Favorite Booth experiences thus far? Small group experiences with friends – nights out at Kingston Mines and Old Grounds Social doing Live Band karaoke come to mind. I also thought Booth Insights was a really interesting and rewarding experience.
