Class of 2025

Minor: Spanish and Sustainability

Hometown: The Woodlands, Texas

Hi y’all! 

My name is Samantha, I am a Junior BBA from The Woodlands, Texas concentrating in Marketing and Strategy with a double minor in Spanish and Sustainability. I always knew I wanted to study business, however, Ross has helped me discover my passion for marketing and given me so many opportunities to pursue this passion with real world experiences. At first, I was nervous about coming to a school as big as The University of Michigan coming from a small private school in Texas, but it has been the best decision I’ve ever made! There were and continue to be so many opportunities to meet people and make new friends, and I immediately felt right at home! I am not only getting an incredible education and access to a plethora of resources that continue to set me up for success in my future career, but I’ve also made so many incredible friends and have been supported in every step of the transition from high school to college. Outside of class, I am a Ross BBA Peer Mentor, Course Assistant for BA200, a member of BBA Marketing Club, MUSKET, and I am a member of Kappa Delta sorority. I can almost always be found either in the Winter Garden or the Ross gym and an insider tip — the Ross Starbucks is the fastest on campus in my opinion. 

I have had an incredible experience at Michigan and Ross so far and I am so glad I get to call this place hoMe! If y’all have any questions and concerns, please reach out, I’d be more than happy to talk about all things Michigan with you! Go Blue!

What do you enjoy doing outside of class time? Singing, traveling, trying new foods, hanging out with friends.
