Larissa Purnell


About Larissa

Hi! My name is Larissa Purnell and it is such a pleasure and honor to serve the Marshall Community as President this year. As a senior majoring in Business Administration with minors in Health Policy and Digital Studies, I’ve found Marshall to be an incredible place to build a foundational skill set to pursue a leadership role in my personal passions, and I hope to bring this realization to our student body this year. Whether it’s collaborating with and supporting other Marshall Organizations to put on the best events for Marshall Students, working with administrators to express the voice of our all our students (majors, minors, transfers, and exchange students), or improving upon our traditional initiatives like business card sales, panel discussions, and professional portraits, my team aspires to help Marshall students achieve their personal and professional goals. When I have some free time, I love going to concerts, challenging myself to run, or jamming on my ukulele. I am always open to hearing from my peers about opportunities, ideas, and concerns - please don’t hesitate to contact me if you have any at lpurnell@usc.edu. Fight On!
