I am a senior from St. Paul, Minnesota pursuing a major in Business Administration through the BLP program. I am extremely interested in sustainable business solutions and learning about corporate social responsibility initiatives within corporations. I’ve completed three internships since coming to UPS focusing on supply chain management, marketing and communications. Outside of academics, I participate in the repertory dance group (RDG), work for catering on-campus, I enjoy spending time outdoors, and am a member of the Phi Eta Sigma and Mortar Board national honor societies. I look forward to enriching the BLP program this year!

Hello! I'm Madeline, and I'm currently in my third year at UPS and am originally from Boise, Idaho. I am pursuing a major in Business Administration, and I have minors in Communications Studies and Asian Studies. Besides exploring Tacoma's vast variety of coffee shops to find the perfect study space, you can find me volunteering for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Program of Tacoma, leading trips for Puget Sound Outdoors, participating in Greek life activities, and giving tours at the admissions office. This semester, I am eager to implement new ideas for future BLP events and seminars.

Hi, I'm Darby and am currently a sophomore from Maui, Hawaii. I plan to major in BLP with an emphasis in marketing and am thinking about either a double major or minor in communications studies. Outside of the BLP, I run both cross country and track and field, focusing on mid to long distance running. I also am a part of the Ka Ohana Aloha Hawaii club, the Phi Eta Sigma honors society, marketing club, and I work as an office assistant in the School of Business and Leadership. Outside of campus life, I really enjoy taking photos, exploring the PNW, thrifting, and being creative (I love taking advantage of the makerspace in the library). I am so excited to be on the BLP Student Board this semester and am looking forward to connecting with more BLP students, practicing leadership, enhancing the BLP program, and representing the sophomore class!

I am from Portland, Oregon and I am a first year at the University of Puget Sound. I am pursuing a double major in Business and Leadership and Psychology or Communications. I am also a part of the lacrosse team and although drums are my main and favorite instrument, I enjoy practicing the guitar in my free time, . Before coming to Puget Sound, I realized I was interested in the business track when I took interest in buying and reselling streetwear branded clothing, like Supreme, as a side income. My passion for finding and creating value in clothing items led me to be a part of the Business and Leadership Program and I am excited for the opportunities that will come!
