What do you love about the Rawls College?
The opportunities the Rawls College gives its students are incredible! One of my favorite memories while in college was studying abroad in Florence, Italy. It was such an amazing opportunity to be able to study abroad with Rawls College students and professors. I would highly encourage everyone to study abroad if they get the chance.
Why did you decide to be a Rawls College Ambassador?
I was very involved in my sorority and in other organizations on campus, but I wanted to become more involved in the Rawls College. I knew joining Rawls College Ambassadors would be a great way for me to meet like-minded students who are a part of the Rawls College, as well as serve the college.
Do you have any advice for new students coming into the Rawls College?
