My name is Benjamin Schuster and I am from Cleveland Heights, Ohio. I am a freshman here at the University of Michigan intending on studying either Philosophy, Politics, and Economics or Business Economics & Public Policy through the Ross School of Business. Currently, I am involved as a member of the Michigan Community Scholars Program (MCSP), as an undergraduate research assistant through the Undergraduate Research Opportunity Program (UROP), and have been involved with numerous community service initiatives and programs both here at the University of Michigan and at home in Cleveland Heights. Some of my favorite hobbies and activities include swimming, studying, hanging out with friends. I am passionate about socioeconomic barriers to resources and opportunities, a passion that got me involved with discussions about the achievement gap and student mentorship programs. In addition, I care deeply about LGBTQ rights and visibility. As a building manager, I am hoping to help the Ginsberg Center run smoothly and efficiently in its day-to-day operations as well as make stronger connections to the University of Michigan and Ann Arbor communities. Down the road, I would love to be more involved with other Ginsberg programs to support me in both building stronger leadership skills and achieving greater community involvement as a whole.
