Journalism and mass communications major from Overland Park, KS
Res hall life
I loved living in the residence halls. It gave me a great opportunity to get involved and take on a really rewarding leadership position as the vice president of the hall governing board. It was really easy to meet people and make friends in the residence halls. We did lots of fun things as a hall, like pumpkin carving and ice cream socials. Each day I met someone new.
I think that the Introduction to Leadership Concepts class was really helpful, and it got me interested in more classes like it. My advisor led me toward the leadership minor with the nonprofit focus. I think it's going to be really beneficial and also help me continue my passion of service.
The people here make the university that much better. Everyone's different, but it doesn't matter. I work with new student services and give tours all over campus. I love what I do, because I'm proud of this university and I want to show off the campus.
Becoming an ambassador
I wanted to become an ambassador because I wanted to share my K-State story with prospective students. My decision to become a Wildcat was because of the incredible students I met as a senior in high school. I wanted to be that connection for a future Wildcat. I enjoy the trips to college fairs and prospective student events that are held in Kansas City. At these events, you are able to talk with many different students and families. Ambassador applications and interviews are in February.
It is so easy to find a way to get involved on our campus. I was able to find a mentor who led me to different clubs and organizations. All you have to do is ask and anyone is willing to help you find your niche.
