Emmeline Wong Business Administration, UC Berkeley As a Chinese student who came to the United States after completing high school in Peru, I chose CSM because of its flexibility and efficiency in placing students into classes that fit them the best. It was, indeed, a wise decision: CSM has helped me transfer to my dream school, U.C. Berkeley's Haas School of Business. What makes CSM wonderful is its connection with local firms and professionals that makes it possible for enriching workshops, informational sessions, and career fairs to take place on campus. Also, as a member of the Associated Students of CSM, I learned a lot about politics and organizational skills. Similarly, as an active member of Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society, I applied my knowledge to research-based projects and was able to attend international conventions with over 3,500 delegates from around the world. All of these experiences contributed to being admitted to my first choice university and receiving scholarships. Most importantly, CSM's caring staff members and counselors ALWAYS put their heart out there for students. CSM is my home, and I am blessed for being part of this family.
