Name: Ana Subotic
When international students inquire about Winthrop, an international student on campus helps respond to their questions.
Ana Subotic, a junior integrated marketing communication major from Slovenia and Greece, can relate to attending university in a different country. She followed her brother, Leon, to Winthrop and both attend on international ambassador scholarships.
Subotic works in the admissions office with the International Student Recruiter to help ease the application process for students from around the world.
"It is a good feeling to meet someone that I have been in contact with," Subotic said.
She also chips in with travel arrangements for the recruiter, with giving campus tours and such events as World Wide Winthrop Day, Preview Day and First Look Fridays.
A dancer with modern dance and ballet training, Subotic mixes easily with American and international students with her outgoing personality. Her family noted that she showed an early interest in public relations, marketing and advertising as her father coached professional basketball in Slovenia.
She worked a six-week internship this summer with Formitas BBDO, an integrated communication agency in Slovenia specializing in advertising, communication strategies, strategic management and corporate communication. She gained valuable experience when she served as project manager for a car catalog. "They trusted me a lot," she said to work with clients, designers and photographers to complete the product. "I am very detail-oriented and goal-oriented."
She loves Winthrop for its small classes, attention from professors who know her name and friendly atmosphere. "I would love to stay in the Charlotte area and work," Subotic concluded.
