Natasha Obama, who goes by the name Sasha, President Barack Obama’s youngest daughter will be off next week as a freshman at the University of Michigan.
Sasha was observed attending the summer freshman orientation. This week, she was seen on campus, surrounded by people thought to be Secret Service agents.
Third-year film student Zach Lassen said “I was walking by pushing a vacuum and she walked out right in front of me. I said, ‘Excuse me.’ It was a crowded hallway with her and some Secret Service dudes.”
When Lassen was asked what he thought about the President’s daughter attending the school, he said that some people he worked with were a little annoyed with the security. He added that it was “pretty cool.”
Sasha is enrolled to start classes at the school on September 3, 2019. The Detroit News reported that by choosing this school, she went on a different path from the other Obamas. Sasha is attending a public Big Ten university, and the others attended Ivy League schools.
The family’s other daughter, Malia Obama, in 2016 took a year off before enrolling at Harvard. This was the same school her parents went to law school. In the fall, Malia will be a junior at Harvard.
