Hi Y’all! My name is Jared and I’m a junior concentrating in marketing and management. When starting the college search process, I knew I wanted to go to a big, prestigious school with a ton 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 been able to explore all of my interests through different organizations. I’ve refined my marketing and leadership skills through the Michigan Advertising and Marketing Club. I have always loved television, so I got involved with the student television network, WOLV TV, and the BBA Entertainment and Digital Media Club. Lastly, after going to summer camp for 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.
I feel very fortunate to be able to walk into the Winter Garden every day and 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, or anything else! I hope to see you on campus soon.
Current involvement: Michigan Advertising & Marketing Club, Camp Kesem at the University of Michigan, BBA Entertainment + Digital Media Club, WOLV TV
