Meet Elizabeth, a student from O'Fallon, MO, located about 30 minutes west of St. Louis. Currently a senior at Drury University in Springfield, MO, Elizabeth is majoring in Marketing and German, with an additional minor in Communication and Global Studies. What do you love about your school and your major? I love Drury University's small and close community because I know I will always be greeted with a familiar smile when I am walking through campus. With professors that care strongly for their students, I believe I am successful in my studies thus far. As far as my major goes, I love advertisements and figuring out what triggers individuals to act the way they do upon seeing them, so I felt that marketing was the perfect combination of advertising and psychology for me. Learning German at an early age, I chose to keep pursuing the language as a major and many of my ancestors are of German descent. What are your favorite things to do outside of school? When I'm not hanging out or studying with my sorority sisters, reading and watching movies are my go-to. Notably, my top two favorite books include City of Thieves by David Benioff and The Art of Racing in the Rain by Garth Stein. Where do you see yourself in the future? I am not completely sure where I see myself in the future but I believe that anything can happen and that in the end I will end up where I belong. I am very ambitious and am equipped with a lot of interests, a marketing degree offers me limitless opportunities. For now, my top goal is to eventually work for Focus Features in the marketing department helping to promote films that are much more than just blockbusters. What do you love about StudyBlue? One of my favorite features on StudyBlue is the ability to share decks with classmates and put information in about courses and professors. Searching for classes before each new flashcards deck allows me to be able to use another student's decks to save vast amounts of time. My advice to students is to make your flashcard decks early. It can be difficult with classes and homework piling up, but if you gradually add to your decks it becomes much more manageable. Instead of spending time making cards spend the time studying for the big test!
