Describe the university of Tennessee in one word: Passionate
What excites you the most about being a Peer Mentor?
Why do you think FYS 101 courses are important? I think FYS 101 is an important course because it allows first year students to be in an environment where everyone is in the same boat as them. These classes give students an importance to be among their peers and share probably similar experiences that they are dealing with as they are adjusting from highschool to college.
What is your favorite activity to do in Knoxville? Definitely attending football games on Saturdays or going downtown and eating ice cream at Cruz Farms.
What is your go-to snack food? Sour Patch kids or Cheetos
Give your best piece of advice for first-year students: Don't be afraid to ask for help. I know it can be weird and you might be anxious but just do it, I promise it will really benefit you!
