Originally from Monument, Colorado before moving to Merritt Island, Florida, Sami Dunlap is a 2020 graduate of Stetson University. She majored in Russian and East European Studies with a minor in Art History. While she originally entered Stetson with a full national ROTC scholarship but left the program after an injury, she continued to engage in the school and community, working at the campus museum, and The Hand Art Center. In addition, she worked with the Russian Club, tutored, and eventually studied abroad in Kyiv Ukraine. In her junior and senior years, she led the Russian Club and interned with the Art History department. Sami was a recipient of the S.U.R.E grant; which is a research-intensive experience where she worked one-on-one with a faculty member.
“Stetson has a special place in my heart—the professors and people I met accepted me for who I was and what I wanted when I started and supported me just as much when I had to do a complete 180. The people I met who helped nurture my different interests and helped me figure out who I wanted to be. When I decided to come to Stetson, this is exactly what I’d hoped for. Students and staff as much as professors gave me the liberal arts education I’d been hoping for. I am delighted to work in admissions and guide other students to the school I’ve loved so much.”
