Laura B. - Masters in Health Administration Student Ambassador
Hi! My name is Laura B. and I am originally from Louisville, Kentucky. I attended the University of Kentucky for undergrad, where I majored in business management and marketing. I am a first year MHA student and I am thoroughly enjoying both the program and the city of Charleston. In my spare time I like to paint, read, shop, and go to the beach. I also enjoy going to all the fun classes at the MUSC Wellness Center such as Tae-Bo, Zumba, ballet, and cycling.
Being from out of state, I thought moving out of Kentucky for the first time would be hard, but I feel very at home at MUSC thanks to my professors, faculty, and fellow students. Everyone here is very friendly and hospitable which definitely makes the transition easier. Also, with everything Charleston has to offer, it is hard to have a dull moment-from classes to the beach to the amazing restaurants and shopping- there is always something to do here! MUSC plans a lot of fun events too, such as boat cruises, gallery hops, and oyster roasts.
I chose MUSC because it is a highly ranked medical university and all of its programs focus on interprofessional collaboration within the healthcare field. Despite the College of Health Professions being the largest college at MUSC, all the professors are very helpful and are always willing to take time outside of class to meet with students. Additionally, the faculty is very encouraging and tells us all of the steps we need to take in order to be successful after graduation. We are also encouraged to obtain internships outside of class time in order to get hands on experience in health administration. I like that our classes are primarily in the morning so scheduling internships is easier.
Overall, I am very happy that I chose MUSC because I am having a great time, both educationally and socially. I have learned a great deal so far and I know I will have a bright future after graduating from this program.
