What do you love about the Rawls College?
I love all of the resources Rawls College students are given to be more successful students. We have the luxury of having such an amazing Career Management Center staff who are fully dedicated to ensuring students' future success. We also have a lot of student organizations that students can become involved in, such as TSCA, TMA, Rawls College Ambassadors and many more.
Why did you decide to become a Rawls College Ambassador?
One of the main reasons I chose to attend Texas Tech was because of the strong reputation of the business college. As I began taking classes in the Rawls College, I noticed the ambassadors always gave back to the college by promoting student engagement and constantly being goodwill ambassadors. I had a strong desire to give back to the college that had already given me so much, and I saw Rawls College Ambassadors as my opportunity to do just that.
Do you have any advice for new students coming into the Rawls College?
My main piece of advice for new students would be to develop relationships with your professors. Professors in the Rawls College care so much about their students' future success and are always more than willing to go the extra mile to help enrich your college experience.
