Austin, Texas

Cassandra is a Senior double-majoring in Economics and History with a concentration in Data Analytics. As a first-generation Boilermaker from Austin, Texas, she has fallen in love with every aspect of Purdue, from cheering on the Boilermakers at sports games to engaging in the many long-held traditions and opportunities that Purdue has to offer. Cassandra serves on the Purdue Foundation Student Board Events Committee.


In addition to Purdue Foundation Student Board, Cassandra competes in Ballroom Dancing, does research in economics, and serves on the board of a non-profit, Roundtable Politics, as Treasurer. Cassandra plans to attend law school following graduation and pursue a career focused on Constitutional Law and the intersection between economics and politics. You might run into her playing soccer or at St. Tom’s, when she is not in the classroom or hanging out with friends. This year in PFSB, Cassandra is excited to support Purdue For Life events and maintaining and improving the community within PFSB while serving on the events committee to further the Boilermaker pride and spirit of philanthropy!
