About me:  I wanted to become an ambassador to encourage other students to join the Honors College so that they can experience its many benefits. From the best classes the university has to offer to the opportunity to travel around the country, the Honors College has given me so much and I want other students to see the advantages that come from being a part of the Honors College. I also want to be able to alleviate any intimidation that incoming freshman might feel about joining.  I remember the requirements of the Honors College being a little scary as a high school senior but asking questions and getting a personal perspective from an ambassador made me realize the Honors College is both manageable and worthwhile.  And I want to provide that same assistance to future students.

My favorite thing about the Honors College is the quality of the classes and professors. I have never been bored in one of my honors classes; instead, I always genuinely enjoy class and leave knowing I have learned something.  All the professors are wonderful teachers who work hard to truly engage their students in the material. 

After graduating, I plan to get my masters in Speech-Language Pathology.  I want to use my degree to work with children with speech needs.
