Hi everyone, it's so exciting to see that you've expressed an interest in Michigan Ross! My college search was a complex process, leaving me with many great options, but I chose to come to the University of Michigan because I was looking for the combination of a top undergraduate business school and a vibrant college experience. Having completed my sophomore year in the BBA program, I'm lucky to have met such great people, both in and out of the classroom. In addition to exploring my passion for business, I'm pursuing a Spanish minor through the College of Literature, Science, and the Arts. What's unique about Michigan Ross is that students benefit from the incredible resources and faculty in the business school as well as the variety of opportunities available across the University of Michigan campus. I never would have expected to interact with such diverse groups of students during my time in college, yet my involvement with student organizations has introduced me to students of all ages allowed me to learn from many of their experiences. Something important to note about my experience at Michigan Ross is that I was given access to helpful academic advisors, career development workshops and internship recruiting events, and student clubs all starting on day one. In fact, I recall receiving an email the second week of my freshman year, inviting me to attend a finance career expo specifically designed for BBA freshmen and sophomores. Just a few months later, I found myself at an oil trading simulation at the Tozzi Electronic Business and Finance Center, learning from experts in the field in preparation for my freshman year internship. Ultimately, I couldn't imagine myself in any other place. Michigan Ross has exposed me to such valuable academic and extracurricular opportunities, and for that I'm truly grateful. Please feel free to reach out or stop by my drop­ in hours if you have any questions. Go Blue!
