What do you look forward to about being an ambassador?

“I look forward to meeting prospective students and seeing them see the campus for the first time. It’s always a pleasure to hear what drew people to Oglethorpe and to see the diverse people that come here.”

Campus involvement:

  • Student Ambassador
  • Students Today, Alumni Tomorrow (STAT)
  • ASIA
  • Retract Club

Favorite spot on campus

“I am always in the library or the Cousins Center.”

Favorite off-campus spot or activity

“I don’t have a specific go-to place off campus, but whenever I have free time, I love walking to Town Brookhaven with friends. It’s nice to go to a new location and relax regardless of if we have a place in mind or not. However, I do love going to parks, walking around, feeding the ducks, and having picnics. ”

What advice do you have for prospective students?

“I think the most important thing to remind yourself of is that it is ok to not have everything together. It is ok to struggle. You are in a new environment, and it’s going to take some time to adapt to the changes. Life is not a straightforward path, so don’t let getting thrown off your ideal path discourage you. Never give up and keep trying; eventually, you’ll find yourself back on track to wherever life is meant to take you.”
