Michael Wallace

Michael Wallace

Major: Marketing

Hometown: Kingwood, Texas

Memberships and Organizations: Graduate of the Program for Excellence in Selling

Favorite College Memory: As an avid sports fan, most of my favorite memories have occurred at The Fertitta Center or TDECU Stadium. Particularly, I will never forget the first basketball game in the Fertitta Center. The atmosphere was electric, and the game was intense. Never before have I heard the arena get so loud when Tilman Fertitta (the entrepreneur who donated money for the stadium) walked on court and did the first ceremonial tip-off. Thanks to the Bauer Ambassador program, I had the opportunity to volunteer at Mr. Fertitta’s book signing a year or so after that game. All in all, I have made TONS of college memories that I will remember forever.

Why Did You Choose Bauer: I chose the Bauer College of Business because of the unique opportunities that the college has to offer. For example, the Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship is currently ranked #1 in the nation and the Stepehen Stagner Program for Excellence in Selling is also regarded as one of the nation’s best sales programs. Additionally, Houston is a great city to live in and provides a multitude of business connections and internship opportunities for me to explore.
