Describe the university of Tennessee in one word: Community

What excites you the most about being a Peer Mentor? Being able to pass down knowledge that I wish that I had known and making new students feel welcomed and accepted!

Why do you think FYS 101 courses are important? To familiarize yourself with the campus, traditions, and resources UT has to offer!

What is your favorite activity to do in Knoxville? Ice cream at Cruze Farm downtown YUM

What is your go-to snack food? celery and peanut butter

Give your best piece of advice for first-year students: If you're having trouble with something, ask someone! Go to office hours, make friends with upperclassmen, and use your resources that are offered to you. Make the most of your time here because it flies by!
