About me: I became an Honors College Ambassador to promote the Honors College to incoming students. I wanted to share with new students the opportunities and guidance the Honors College has provided me. I felt that students should know all the options available to them from the Honors College, and it was my goal to inform them.

My favorite part of the Honors College is the active learning trips that go along with the smaller class setting. The smaller class sizes allow students to have a hands-on feel to their learning environment. By participating in an active learning class, students will be able to travel across the country to get a better appreciation for the subject they are studying. I personally was able to go to New York City!

For the future I plan on attending graduate school, which I will be prepared for thanks to the Honors College.
