Freshman
Bloomfield, MI
Major: Computer Science

Graduated from Lahser High School

Most memorable experience of campus: When I walked into the University Center on the first day of school and I saw a group of my friends from the W.O.W. (Wolverines. Orientation. Wilderness.) trip. It felt great walking into school already knowing 40+ other students. It gave me the sense of ‘community’ feeling Dearborn is able to provide its students, that other universities cannot due to its size.

Advice for prospective students: College is all about experimenting. If you don’t take the time to fully enjoy everything college has to offer, you are going to regret it later. You need to take full advantage of, as some like to call it, the ‘college experience.’ Join a student organization, or try something you never imagined you would ever do. I can tell you from experience, I tried something I would have never done, and from it, I formed meaningful relationships with some of my closest friends.

Graduated from Dearborn High School

Most memorable experience of campus: When I met with my Pre-Professional Health Advisor, Dr. Debalina Bandyopadhyay. She really helped me develop a timeline of my classes for Pre-Dentistry and gave me really helpful advice.

Advice for prospective students: Explore all of your options before you make your final decision. Talk to current students, faculty, and alumni. Decide what qualities are most important to you in a university. Take a campus tour, speak with an admissions counselor, or even visit during a college visit day! Don’t be afraid to ask questions and learn more about the campus.

Graduated from Annapolis High School

Most memorable experience of campus: It was during welcome week when the school brought in various activities. My friend Sara even got me to do a rock climbing challenge even though I am afraid of heights.

Advice for prospective students: Find a balance between fun and studying. College is about learning how to make the most of your time. Finding the perfect amount of fun and work is vital.

Graduated from International Academy High School

Most memorable experience of campus: When Tim Wise, a nationally renowned anti-racist activist, spoke at UM-Dearborn’s Conversation on Race lecture series. Students, staff, and faculty from all over campus came to listen to Wise’s presentation. It brought about a strong sense of community and a desire to learn how to better understand ourselves and treat others.

Advice for prospective students: Take your time, visit the campus, talk with current students and alumni, and explore all of your options before you make a final decision. UM-Dearborn is a smaller university that makes it easy to talk to professors and advisors to find the right information. Constantly collecting information and asking questions about a college is the best way to figure out if the college is the right fit…and when you find the college that is perfect for you, you’ll just know it!

Graduated from Troy Athens High School

Most memorable experience of campus: Going to my first college class because of all the anticipation and excitement of finally being able to go to college. The class was sociology and my professor was really cool and funny. The environment was completely different from high school.

Advice for prospective students: Make sure you manage your time well and try not to procrastinate on projects and papers!
