Sam Shepard

Professional title

CLA Senator


Sam is from Hastings, Minnesota. He is currently a sophomore double majoring in Political Science and Criminology. He hopes to use his degree to help others, and potentially work within the government. At UMD, Sam is involved in other groups such as the Student Service Fees Committee and the CLA Tech Advisory Committee.

Outside of SA, Sam enjoys to goof around and hangout with friends. He loves running and staying in shape, and is training for his first marathon this summer. In addition, he likes playing and watching sports, especially football and basketball. Since physically watching and playing basketball isn’t enough for Sam, he also spends time playing 2k, and usually winning.

Sam has been particularly busy this year as CLA Senator. He is currently on the Online Learning Task Force, along with the CLA Dean Search Committee. Sam hopes to continue to be involved in order to help serve the student body the best he can.
