Describe the university of Tennessee in one word: Home

What excites you the most about being a Peer Mentor? I'm excited to help new students figure out what they want to do and major in. I am also excited to make them feel like they have a friend to talk to.

Why do you think FYS 101 courses are important? So students will be more familiar with the campus, so they can branch out and meet new people and so they can have a little extra help deciding their major and minors.

What is your favorite activity to do in Knoxville? Not exactly in knoxville but I love going to the smokey mountains to hike!!

What is your go-to snack food? Chips and guacamole

Give your best piece of advice for first-year students: Studying is your number one priority, but know when to take a break.
