Why should students take advantage of meeting with Student Success Ambassadors?: Having an on campus mentor is a great way to build a genuine relationship with someone who knows what it is like to be where you are now! As a student success ambassador, I have built and maintained great friendships with my mentees and I believe that is an experience that every first-year, first-generation student should have!

Most rewarding UT experience: My most rewarding experience here at UT is being able to receive support as a first-generation student and learn that I have people here rooting for my success. This has helped me make lifelong friends that have turned into family.

One piece of advice to new students at UT: My advice to new students is to always communicate, whether it is a professor or your peers. Do not be afraid to ask questions or make a new friend because collaboration leads to success!
