Class of 2023

Minor: French

Hometown: Shelby Township, MI

Hi everyone! My name is Lauren, and I am a senior at the University of Michigan majoring in Business and minoring in French. I have loved Ross’s collaborative learning environment and focus on crafting lifelong mission statements that help students navigate life, academics, and professional development. Ross doesn’t just encourage its students to succeed; it wants them to succeed at doing what they love. My classes and the collaborative environment have helped me identify my personal mission statement and community within my business fraternity.

I intend to concentrate in marketing and strategy, using my education to dismantle barriers to professional resources. This year I have had the opportunity to dedicate my time to seeing how nonprofits and small businesses grow as a Marketing Consultant at the Google Community Leaders Program. The skills I've gleaned both in and out of the Ross classrooms have been instrumental in my personal and professional development. At Ross, I have become a more confident, passionate, and motivated learner. Coming here is one of the best decisions I have ever made, and I encourage you to learn more about Ross.
If you would like to learn more about the Ross experience, feel free to email me or stop by drop in hours!
