Sasha Obama, former President Barack Obama's younger daughter begins her college education at the University of Michigan next week. According to DetroitNews, Sasha, whose legal name is Natasha, attended summer freshman orientation. She was seen this week on the university terrain accompanied by the Secret Service agents. The Typical Student team learned what Sasha's future college mates think of the news.
She Looks Just Like A Normal Student
To say students were surprised by witnessing Sasha Obama's is to say nothing. Here's what Zach Lassen, a third-year film student from Redford, recollects: "I was walking by pushing a vacuum and she walked out right in front of me. I said, 'Excuse me.' It was a crowded hallway with her and some Secret Service dudes." The campus staff apparently is a bit annoyed with the added security.
An 18-year-old freshman from Southfield who chose to remain anonymous said she saw Obama during her student orientation on Wednesday. Most people say, she looks just like "a normal student" to them.
Sasha's Enrollment Speculations
The Detroit News reports, Sasha Obama is enrolled for classes that start Tuesday. She chose to attend "a public Big Ten university instead of seeking an Ivy League education." Sasha's sister, Malia Obama, took a gap year in 2016 prior to enrolling at Harvard University. The girls' parents both attended Harvard University law school.
The rumors of Sasha Obama becoming a Wolverine started after an Instagram profile attributed to her posted a snap of Sasha with two friends on the Ann Arbor campus. The University of Michigan was tagged in a picture captioned: "So proud to say I’m going to college with my sisters!!”
The UM officials declined to comment whether or not the former President's daughter is enrolled at the university. The rep commented as follows:
"We cannot confirm the enrollment of any student. Classes do not start until next week, and we are weeks away from official enrollment information."
