Featured student: Samantha Ross

Name: Samantha Ross
School: Saint Louis University
Hometown: Libertyville, IL
Major: Occupational Therapy

I chose Saint Louis University because it is the perfect school for me to grow in my education and in my faith. SLU has an outstanding occupational therapy program and exemplary faculty for the health sciences. SLU also has service opportunities, religious clubs, and much more. When I visited campus for the first time I thought it was so amazing that SLU had such a close-knit community in such a large city.


My hobbies include singing, acting, volunteering, and reading. I was in choir throughout high school, and I hope to continue to sing at SLU. My favorite volunteer opportunities in high school were participating in Best Buddies and tutoring elementary school children. I also enjoy traveling, and I am excited to be studying abroad at SLU's Madrid campus in the future.


I plan to complete my degree at SLU and hope to become a pediatric occupational therapist.
