What is your favorite part about being a Peer Mentor?

Meeting all the people within the FYS community and watching my students make connections on campus!

What is your advice for First-Year Students?

Get involved on campus, go to office hours, and ALWAYS carry an umbrella (even if it's sunny and 75--remember this is Tennessee).

Describe the color orange:

Orange is the warmest color. It is warm and welcoming and vibrant. Orange feels like the last few rays of sunshine on a Saturday evening in the fall when the Pride of the Southland is playing Rocky Top in Neyland Stadium (go Vols!).

What is your favorite place on campus?

Ayers Lawn if the weather is nice!
