WHY DID YOU WANT TO BE A CBE AMBASSADOR?
I wanted to be a CBE ambassador because I am passionate about helping prospective and incoming students have a great experience at the University of Idaho. I wanted to influence someone’s life and help someone the way I have been helped.
WHAT HAS BEEN ONE OF YOUR FAVORITE EXPERIENCE?
My favorite experience was taking the first semester of IBC over the summer and being able to meet the wonderful faculty and people in the CBE. Taking summer IBC was a life-changing experience that left me with great friends and a learning environment that I will never forget.
WHAT ADVICE WOULD YOU GIVE TO NEW CBE STUDENTS?
My advice to new CBE students is to get involved, both within the College of Business and Economics and the University. Look out for opportunities that will help you with your major, join a club, or take part in student government. There are endless amounts of ways someone can get involved on campus. In addition, making new friends and meeting new people is a great way to enhance the college experience and make connections. Get to know your teachers as well; they will push you to your limits and are always willing to help.
