What do you love about the Rawls College of Business?
What I love most about Rawls are the people that make up the school. The college is full of mentors and fellow classmates who are there to help and support you, from professors to faculty in the advising office and Career Management Center, they all want you to succeed. What separates Rawls from the rest is their strong encouragement towards success and the devotion to assisting you in accomplishing your goals for the future. At Rawls you are not just a number. You can truly tell that these people care for you. The school creates an environment that makes you want to strive to be the best student and young professional that you can be.
Why did you decide to be a Rawls ambassador?
One reason I applied to be an ambassador was to give back to the college that has given me so much. Being able to serve the college while assisting the Dean with hosting and attending various events on behalf of the college has been such an honor. Serving as an ambassador, you get the opportunity to network with not only students but also alumni and donors, helping you form relationships and receive real-world advice from people in the industry.
Do you have any advice for new students coming into the Rawls College of Business?
My biggest piece of advice for incoming business students would be to get involved. Whether it's through a general student organization, such as Rawls Ambassadors, or a major concentrated organization. Do not be afraid to put yourself out there and meet new people. College would not be the same if it were not for the people I have met in Rawls student organizations.This supports the efforts outlined in the Rawls College of Business Strategic Plan.
