STEPHANIE ANDERSON

My name is Stephanie Anderson. I am a third year student in the Biomedical Engineering program. I am in Kappa Beta Gamma International Sorority and the Society of Suicide Awareness and Prevention on campus. I have multiple on-campus jobs and have lived in both upperclassmen housings. When I'm not in class, you can find me running around campus finding yet another club to join! I love to laugh, travel, and to find new and creative ways to better myself physically and mentally. I also love to cook and am constantly trying new recipes. I can't wait to have yet another wonderful year as a mentor (this is my second year) and for a whole new group of amazing and driven students to join the Blue Devil family! See you in fall!

I am Maaz Anjum and I am a 4th year Industrial Engineering major here at LTU. I currently intern at a Tier 2 Automotive Supplier called Persico USA in Rochester Hills. At home I am the lone boy in my family with two older sisters and they make sure to annoy me on a daily basis. This would be my first year participating in the First Year and Discovery Days programs and I really look forward to it. There are so many great things at LTU ranging from social orgs to athletics, for example I am in a fraternity and on the Ultimate Frisbee team (yes, that's a real sport, not really LTU athletics but close enough). I am excited to share my knowledge and love for LTU and everything about it. Anyways I am bad at writing bios so just find me and talk to me, I promise I am not as overly cheesy as this bio. I am just moderately cheesy.
