Bevin Murphy '23

Major: Marketing

Hometown: Stratham, NH

Campus Involvement: SB  Ambassadors

Why CofC? One of the main reasons why I chose to attend the College of Charleston was the School of Business and all it had to offer. With the College of Charleston being located downtown, there are many small, growing businesses that are ideal for college students to become involved in. The School of Business takes advantage of its location by providing lots of opportunities for its students to become engaged with its community. Along with these exciting benefits, I am passionate about becoming involved with the business world and creating a career out of it.


Bridget Mayza '22

Major: Marketing

Minor: Data Science

Hometown: Pennsburg, PA

Campus Involvement: Phi Eta Sigma National Honor Society, National Society of Leadership and Success

Why CofC? I am a very left-sided brained person. Whenever I have to make a decision, I lay out all of the information and choose the most logical answer based on those facts. Because of this, choosing a career in the School of Business would best suit me, while also fueling my passion for organization and reasoning. It also allows me to gain more opportunities into helping others that are less fortunate than I am or working with a company to establish eco-friendly operations. The opportunities are endless!
