alum success story

Success story Abby Holland smiling.
I majored in International Studies with a minor in French. Majoring in International Studies enabled me to study abroad in France and to complete an internship with the State Department at the US Embassy in London. Both of these experiences were hugely important in my trajectory to where I am now and I was able to accomplish so much during my time at USD thanks to the support from the faculty and my advisor.
