WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE A CBE AMBASSADOR?
I aspired to the CBE Ambassador position because I love the College of Business and Economics and the effort with which Professors prepare their students for the real business world. When I came to the University of Idaho to first visit, not only was I impressed with the beautiful, technologically extravagant building, but I was taken back by the individual attention that was shown by the recruiters in presenting the College of Business and Economics. I did not feel like another number that was being pushed through the recruiting system.
WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCES SO FAR?
My favorite experience so far in the CBE is simply being a part of the family here and experiencing all that it has to offer. The professors truly care about your success; they want to talk with you and they want to see you achieve that next level of excellence. Not only in grades, or club activities, but they also spur you on to great internship opportunities. The possibilities are endless. For example, being a part of Beta Alpha Psi is a refreshing experience in large part due to the importance that they put on being professional in everything you do and growing your networking opportunities. These experiences give us future professionals that one extra “step-up” above the competition.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE NEW CBE STUDENTS?
It’s a long, hard road to travel, but stick with it and one day you will be glad you got your degree.
