Incoming Marquette University freshman Samantha Pfefferle was all set for the start of her college career. She’d been accepted, paid for her housing, had her roommates, she even had a complete class schedule.
But now it’s not clear that she’ll be attending at all after the furor over a Tik Tok she posted.
What did she say or do? She supported President Donald Trump with the Tik Tok video.
The video, titled “When the libs find their way to your page,” lists captions such as “When people see that I support Trump,” “Then try to hate on me,” and “And think I’ll change my views,” over a video of Pfefferle dancing.
The video features a Trump 2020 flag as well as a sign reading “Marquette 2024.” The song used in the video is rapper 6ix9ine’s GOOBA, and plays lyrics such as “ He’s mad, she’s’ mad, big sad, haha, don’t care, stay mad.”
This Girl just had her Acceptance REVOKED from @MarquetteU for BEING A TRUMP SUPPORTER (and this video).

Pfefferle’s post has been watched nearly 600,000 times and has since caught the attention of the Marquette community, some of whom began harassing Pfefferle. Others threatened her life.
“I hope you get shot,” one commenter told Pfefferle. “I’d pray for you but you’re not worth it,” another user added.
“I was extremely disappointed by the incendiary comments,” Pfefferle told The College Fix in an interview. “The response from my peers has been repulsive.”
From the College Fix:
Pfefferle explained that following the TikTok, she was contacted by Brian Troyer, dean of undergraduate admissions at Marquette, who she said told her her acceptance to the school was far from certain.
“[He] had the heart to tell me I wasn’t a student,” Pfefferle said. “This means that my classification is still in limbo and is currently being decided by the administration. I have been accepted, I paid for my housing, I have my roommates, I even have a complete class schedule. If that doesn’t make me a student, what does?”
Some Marquette administrators also asked Pfefferle a series of questions meant to judge her morals, she said.
“They also asked me hypothetical questions regarding Dreamers,” she said. “How would I respond if a Dreamer who lived down the hall from me came up to me and told me she didn’t feel safe or comfortable with my views and me being on campus. They also asked me if they thought there was anything I could do to improve my image on campus. They proceeded to ask if I was comfortable with the reputation I have established for myself. The assistant dean asked if I put any thought into the response I would be getting from my videos.”
The College Fix reached out to Marquette University, which did not respond to multiple requests for comment.
A Marquette spokeswoman told Empower Wisconsin that the school had not rescinded Pfefferle’s offer, although acknowledged “the admissions team did recently have a conversation with incoming freshman Samantha Pfefferle about statements made on her social media accounts.”
Other social media users are beginning to band together against Pfefferle as well.
What happened to the diversity of thought, political freedom, and liberty? The irony of the fascist mindset of the “liberal” left is getting out of hand. Marquette should be ASHAMED of themselves.
