What do you enjoy most about working with UT undergrads?

UT students come from a very diverse background. I appreciate and welcome the opportunity to hear their unique stories. Their excitement about being a UT student is contagious, and I find their eagerness to learn and their commitment to receiving a high quality education both inspiring and noteworthy.

What is the most important advice you would give new students?

The next four years of your life will present you with various opportunities and many challenges. Take advantage of the opportunities and resources that are available to you as a student. It’s okay to make mistakes, but try your best to learn and grow from them. My advice would be to get involved on campus, meet new people, be bold in the face of adversity, have an open-mind, ask for help, take the time to self-reflect, and find the things that you love.

What is your favorite place on campus?

Starbucks! I love coffee and it’s also just a great place to take a break or re-energize to get more work done.

Where is your top study spot on campus?

The library and the SSC study rooms on the 3rd floor of Greve Hall. Students can study in both of these locations and tutors are also available to provide assistance as needed.

Why should students take advantage of the SSC?

Being a college student can be both exciting and overwhelming. However, the SSC offers a variety of free resources to assist students in being successful. Students should take advantage or the SSC whether they are struggling in their classes or excelling.  We pride ourselves on being a student-centered department where students should expect to receive high quality service.
