Sarah Sobek

Master of Arts in Higher Education

Field of Study: Center for the Study of Higher and Postsecondary Education, Masters

Year in Program: First year

Geographic Region: Madison, WI

Undergraduate: University of Minnesota

Prior to UM:  I am originally from Madison, Wisconsin, but I spent four wonderful years in Minneapolis while completing my undergraduate degree in Psychology. While at the University of Minnesota I trained and competed as a Division 1 rower.

The best part of SOE so far: I have only been in the school of education for about four weeks but what I have really enjoyed so far is the sense of community. Everyone is very supportive and always very friendly. I have appreciated this sense of community among undergrads, master's students and PhD students. 

After graduation: I hope to continue on into a PhD program pertaining to Social Science Research Methodology or Statistics. I hope to continue my work with institutional research and engineering education research.

Teach me something! I LOVE watching sports, particularly the BIG 10, and find it much harder to get work done during basketball season! I also enjoy running and yoga. Additionally I am an awesome baker and can make cinnamon rolls that will melt your heart.
