WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE A CBE AMBASSADOR?

I aspired to become an ambassador for the CBE because I wanted to share my positive experiences with prospective students and their parents. I have been given multiple opportunities to expand my knowledge in multiple business functions, and I wanted to show others these opportunities exist. The relationships I have built with my professors and my peers have assisted me in building a strong foundation for my future. I wanted to show prospective students the possibilities that are within reach if they take advantage of the college’s exceptional professors, advisors, and student body.


WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCES?

My favorite experience has been my being part of open discussions between my IBC team and my IBC professors. Having the opportunity to continually gain new perspectives from many experienced faculty has opened my eyes to different ways of thinking. I enjoyed working with a group of people with different skills and abilities. The opportunities I have been given to build relationships with my peers have led to some of my favorite experiences at the University of Idaho.


WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE NEW CBE STUDENTS?

Visit your professors during office hours. The faculty members within the CBE are exceptional and have continually surprised me with how much effort they are willing to put in to enhance my education.
