What do you love about the Rawls College of Business?
I love how much real-world experience the Rawls College offers. From professors that are long time veterans in their prospective fields to state-of-the-art facilities that mimic modern business technology, the Rawls College is dedicated to ensuring its students leave college with all the tools they need to succeed.
Why did you decide to be a Rawls ambassador?
I have had a lot of passion for the Rawls College since starting here. I tried to join as many organizations as I could at Rawls to keep me plugged into everything the college was doing. I noticed the Rawls Ambassadors had the same passion for the college that I did, and after meeting some of them, I knew I wanted to become an Ambassador.
Do you have any advice for new students coming into the Rawls College of Business?
Incoming students should do everything they can to get involved. It really is the best way to start meeting people, learning more about all that the Rawls offers and feeling a genuine connection and love for their college.
