About me: From the beginning of my Freshman yer, the faculty and staff of the Honors College have helped me tremendously in deciding what I want to do as future career and acquiring information about scholarships/activities/etc. These individuals go out of their way to make sure you have everything you need plus some! Thus, being an Ambassador helps me to further this tradition of the Honors College and lep current and incoming students in whatever issues they may have.
The small classroom size of the Honors College courses is definitely one of my favorite aspects of the Honors College. You are able to have a more intimate relationship with your professor and fellow classmates, which will be crucial later on in life. Being a member of the Honors College allows you to also have such a large support system to ensure success for you while in college and later on.
After I graduate, I hope to acquire an M.D./Ph.D. to further my dreams of advancing biomedical research. I'm not too sure where life will take me, but I would also like to travel the world and see everything life has to offer!
