What Marymount students have to say about Study Away: Vegas -- Spring 2014

“I highly recommend this program to students who are interested getting into the fashion industry. I made friends in the program and at MAGIC.”

“It put me in touch with many individuals in my field, as well as recent grads who had a lot of advice. It gave me something to look forward to when I get out of college.”

“Professionals offered insightful advice and info. I learned there's a variety of job opportunities other than being a buyer or designer. It gave me insight on how to run a business, keep a global conscious, use technology effectively, etc.” 

“The opportunity to see industry professionals from so many parts of the world and hear them speak about how they've achieved success was invaluable. You really get a feel for the business side as well as the creative side of things.”

“It helped me see what I want to do more clearly. My goals have changed but not in a bad way, my goals and possibilities have just opened up!”

 “Before I came on the trip, I didn't really know what I wanted to do after college. But after going to the trade show, I have a better understanding of what I want to do.”

 “My participation in the program only affirmed what I want to do for a career. My career goals didn't exactly change but I've narrowed in in exactly what I want to do because of the seminars I attended.”
