Arjun Saravanan

High School: Klein Oak High School

What are you passionate about?: Family, learning, new challenges

Why Bauer?: The path to Bauer was definitely an interesting one. I spent my early years in New Orleans, Louisiana, and only moved to Houston because my mom’s job relocated after Hurricane Katrina. Soon enough it was my freshman year of high school. I had made some bad grades, and I had no idea what I wanted to pursue in college. It was only in my junior year I found out that my strengths did not lie in teeth or math after my first business competition. My interest in business has brought me here to Bauer. As a Bauer Excellence scholar, I realize that I must strive every day to balance my life through hard work and relentless pursuit.

What are you hoping to accomplish throughout your time at Bauer?: I feel like I am part of a movement of individuals who really want to make a difference for the university and for the workforce. The resources at Bauer have definitely helped me select my major and focus on building networks and finding opportunities. I want to do the same for incoming and prospective students. Another thing I would like to do is expand the outreach and impact of Bauer in the Houston community.

Favorite part of being a Bauer Excellence Scholar?: My favorite thing about Bauer is the vision and the energy associated with this college. Every day I visibly notice students and faculty going out of their way to help others and in turn help Bauer become a better place for learning and development.
