Marketing, Class of 2022
I chose SLU because...
Juliana Menichiello, Marketing, Class of 2022, says, "Like many people, I chose SLU because of its community, both the student body and the faculty and staff. The first time I walked on SLU’s campus, the students were welcoming and excited to be a part of the SLU family."
"When I came in as an undecided major, I had the ability to take an introductory business course. The professor focused the class on his real-world experiences within the business realm, specifically with marketing. Because of my professor's vast knowledge of the business world and his willingness to help, I knew marketing was the best path for me."

"Through in-class and out-of-class activities, SLU’s School of Business brings in executives from top companies around the world to share their experiences and participate in Q&As for students to learn more."
"Our specific School of Business career counselors helped me find my passion for marketing with personality tests and connected me with many companies and people that helped me choose the correct career path for me."
"Minoring in Spanish was very important to me because I am interested in a career in International Business in the future. SLU’s Spanish minor curriculum includes many speaking and writing labs. Additionally, my professors spoke solely in Spanish and always had office hours that students could utilize to speak more Spanish outside the classroom."
