Hi Y’all! My name is Jared and I’m a senior concentrating in marketing and management. When starting the college search process, I knew I wanted to go to a big, prestigious school with a multitude of opportunities. When I came to campus for the first time, I got this indescribable feeling that I was in the right place, and I haven’t looked back since! I was drawn to business because of my interest in how campaigns and strategies can affect the way people think, behave, and interact with the world. Through group projects and action-based learning, I have been able to develop the skills that top businesses use every day.
Here on campus, I have explored all of my interests through different organizations. I’ve refined my marketing and leadership skills through the Michigan Advertising and Marketing Club, working my way up to President this year. I have always loved television, so I got involved with the student television network, WOLV TV, and the BBA Entertainment and Digital Media Club. After going to summer camp for over a decade, I became a volunteer for Camp Kesem, which provides a week-long summer camp for kids who have a parent affected by cancer. This past Winter semester, I had the incredible opportunity to study abroad in Vienna, Austria. I was able to satisfy some of my credit requirements, explore an amazing city, and make lifelong friends.
I feel very fortunate to be a part of the unparalleled community at Ross. Come to drop-in hours if you want to chat about student life, go-to restaurants in Ann Arbor, study abroad, or anything else! I hope to see you on campus soon.
What Spotify playlist are you most likely to be listening to? I'm most likely listening to a playlist called "The North Face Store." When I was shopping at a North Face Store, I really liked the music they were playing so I looked them up on Spotify. Even though the playlist is from a store in Europe and not the one I was in, I am now an avid listener of the 498 song playlist.
