Hi everyone, it's exciting to see that you've expressed an interest in Michigan Ross! My college search was a complex process, leaving me with 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. As a current senior in the BBA program, I'm lucky to have met such great people at the business school, both in and out of the classroom. 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; my involvement with multiple student organizations has introduced me to students of varying ages and allowed me to learn from their social and professional experiences. Something important to note about my experience at Michigan Ross is that I was given access to helpful academic advisors, career development workshops, 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 career expo specifically designed for BBA freshmen and sophomores to explore paths in finance. 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 energy field in preparation for my freshman 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!
