Why should students take advantage of meeting with Student Success Ambassadors?: It can be tough adjusting to a new environment. Having someone there to support  you and be a resource for you is extremely beneficial. Not only that, but meeting with an SSA is a great way for you to socialize and just meet someone new!

Most rewarding UT experience?: There are so many rewarding experiences that I’ve already had at UT! I’ll say that my favorite is when I joined ME4UT. This organization is what really made me want to come to UT in the first place so to be apart of it is a really good feeling!

One piece of advice to new students at UT: A piece of advice that I’d give to new students is to not be afraid to ask for help! There are lots of resources around campus that are here to help you succeed. Take advantage of them!
