Global studies has enabled me to look at the interrelations of societies from an objective point of view. As a freshman, I decided I wanted my college career to truly be a “global study” immersion. I studied abroad for three semesters in Costa Rica, Chile, Thailand, and participated on a travel seminar to Cuba. Being able to study and live the effects of globalization in both western and eastern cultures has inspired me to further my understanding of this phenomenon.Erick Sandoval '16

Just being able to go to school in Southern California opened up numerous opportunities for me. I was able to get hired for a few internships in the music industry, which gave me a good grasp of the different sides of the business, allowing me to try new things and figure out what I want to do.Johnathan Luu '16

I have been shadowing two UCLA pulmonologists consistently since the summer of my freshman year. This experience has been an eye-opener to not only how hard it is to be a doctor, but how worthwhile this profession is. Seeing the patients each week brings me great joy and has solidified my desire to become a doctor.Amy Lai '17
