What do you love about the Rawls College of Business?

The Rawls College is a place filled with people who dedicate their lives to helping students succeed here and beyond. Coming from a small town, I did not want to be lost in the crowd and the faculty and staff makes every student welcome. Even though Tech is a large university, the college still holds the values of helping any and all who come through this campus.

Why did you decide to be a Rawls ambassador?

My freshman mentor and many of the people I looked up to around the college were members of this distinguished organization. I wanted to give back to the Rawls in any way I could and giving my services to an idea of excellence that the Rawls Ambassadors and the college uphold was a great opportunity.

Do you have any advice for new students coming into the Rawls College of Business?

Jump in head first. Get uncomfortable. This is a college filled with opportunities for everyone. We all come from different places, but each of our stories ended up at Texas Tech--ready for the next step in our lives. Don't hold back; make the most of every moment.

This supports the efforts outlined in the Rawls College of Business Strategic Plan. Learn more about the LEADER 2020 Strategic Plan and follow our progress on Twitter at #RawlsLeads.
