Sophomore – Management and Sport Administration
E. J. Ourso College of Business and College of Human Sciences & Education
LSU students are a diverse group. They come from all over the globe with different dreams, goals, and aspirations for their respective futures. Here is a chance to get to know them one at a time. No matter his or her academic discipline, everyone has a story to tell…including you!
Q: What made you decide to attend LSU?
A: I decided to attend LSU because I knew I wanted to go to school in the South. The culture in Louisiana is one that cannot be matched anywhere in the world and I was anxious to spend my college years as part of it. Also, since one of my majors is sport administration, I knew that I wanted to be at a university where I could not only learn about it in a classroom, but practice it as well.
Q: Are there things that surprised you about LSU once you got here?
A: What surprised me about LSU are the far-reaching effects of the university. Because it is one of the biggest universities in Louisiana, it is impossible to drive anywhere in the state without seeing tigers and purple and gold flags on houses and cars. I didn’t expect that spirit to extend beyond Baton Rouge.
Q: What is your favorite thing about LSU?
A: My favorite thing about LSU is the traditions of the school and the Tiger pride. From athletics to the arts, LSU excels and people here are genuinely proud to be a part of it.
Q: What are your goals and how is LSU helping you accomplish them?
A: My goals are to get involved in as many ways as possible and to graduate ready for my next step in the field of sport administration. From LSU Ambassadors to Alpha Kappa Psi business fraternity, I have been able to jump right in to anything that interests me. Also, there are so many opportunities available to students that I am even working in the Athletic Department as a marketing intern.
Q: What advice would you give students who are considering LSU?
A: No matter your interests, there is a place for you here at LSU. You can find where you fit in and all of the resources are here for you to excel in whatever field you choose. I have been able to accomplish so much and get started on my career path after just one year here so I truly believe that anything is possible.
