- Why I chose my major
I knew I wanted to enter a career path and study something that I was truly passionate about, and fashion merchandising is an area that really encapsulates all of my interests and strengths. I chose a brand management emphasis and a business minor because I was drawn to the business aspect of fashion to understand the whys and the hows of the retail industry. I knew this emphasis could translate across many roles and experiences, and this major has allowed me to utilize both my creative and analytical mindset.
- What I like most about FACS
I love FACS because this college has felt like a family where I’ve grown with these people over
the last four years. I love how close-knit the classes are because students and professors get to know each and every person. FACS builds an environment where I feel comfortable asking questions, giving my input, getting to know my peers or going to a professor for advice. I’ve made lifelong friendships among classroom peers and gained meaningful relationships with professors each semester. This college is all about community and everyone here reflects these values.
- Post-graduation plans
I’ve been given the opportunity to join Belk at their corporate offices for the merchandising retail development program.
