CLAS Ambassador Daniel Martinez

Daniel Martinez is a General Studies student with a focus in Economy in Industry. After graduating he hopes to go into corporate retail, specifically planning floor sets or working in merchandising. He tells us a little bit about why General Studies was the right fit for him, his favorite UA memory and shares some advice for future students.
What is your favorite thing about General Studies?
“The best thing about my major is that it allows me to be versatile in different areas. My focus in BGS is Economy and Industry with concentrations in Arts, Media and Entertainment; Social Behavior and Human Understanding and Global and Intercultural Understanding.”  
What is your favorite UA memory so far?
“My favorite UA memory since I have been here would be from my freshman year when the basketball team make it to the Elite 8.”
What advice would you give a student interested in BGS?
“For any student that wants to switch into my major I would say have an open mind and don’t be afraid to take classes that are different.”
