Portrait of Gabrielle Costello

Gabrielle Costello

Communications - Public Relations / Baltimore, MD


What made you decide to enroll at the University of Maryland?
The University of Maryland is in-state but not too close to home so I could still gain some independence while having the ability to go home when I wanted. I also appreciated all of the opportunities that I would be able to take from the prestigious and successful alumni.

What major/career path do you plan on pursuing and how did you select that path?
I am a communications major on the public relations track. I wanted to do sports marketing but then I realized I would rather work with the company's reputation rather than the marketing side of it. I hope to pursue a career in sports PR.

Activities I do outside of class or community service/volunteer activities I'm involved with:
I volunteer with an in-home daycare in the summer, and I also work two jobs. During school I help with philanthropy events like Girl Scouts of America, food drive events, and more.

Aside from academics, what else do you hope to take away from your time at Maryland?
I hope to keep the friends I have made my whole life. I also am excited to bring Maryland pride alongside me for the rest of my life.

What are your future goals after graduation?
My future goal is to work in public relations in sports and move to the south.
