What do you love about the Rawls College?

The people are definitely one of the best things about the Rawls College; from the first day I attended the Rawls College, I felt completely welcome, and it has truly become a second home for me. The Rawls College also has everything you need to learn and grow professionally, such as the Career Management Center and the facilities.

Why did you decide to be a Rawls ambassador?

The Rawls College has given me so much that I really wanted the opportunity to give back to the college. Being a Rawls Ambassador allows me to be part of the constant improvement of the Rawls College. It also allows me to reach out to donors and students to show them how amazing the college is.

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

Don't be afraid to reach out to people; they can open many doors you did not know were there. The faculty and staff at the Rawls College are here to help you and will always do it in the best of spirits.
