“When I graduated high school, I was a super quiet person. I didn’t want to go to a university – living in a dorm with someone would have been a nightmare for me. Even when I first started here, I was super reserved, but over the last two years I’ve really opened up. It’s pretty awesome.”
Detroit native Robert Berry attended Cass Tech High School, where he often found himself in a classroom with 40 other students. Now Macomb offers the business major classes which are usually half that size and where professors call him by name. That’s helped him come out of his shell and become the Student Life and Leadership Event Coordinator, the Fundraising Coordinator of the Phi Theta Kappa honor society and President of the Study Abroad student organization. He also just helped start a classic card game club and is part of a group planning the inaugural Macomb-A-Con event on April 1.
