"Hello! My name is Tess Fairbanks, and I am pursuing a dual degree in Secondary Education and Spanish.  As a future teacher, I am passionate about student success!  I believe that success is just as much about the journey as the end result, and as a Student Success Ambassador I am excited to help connect students with resources to assist in this journey."

Senior in Marketing

"My name is Sofia Leal, and I am a first-generation college student majoring in marketing with a minor entrepreneurship. I am passionate about student success because I've had personal hardships throughout college because I didn't know who to reach out to for help until I was introduced to the Academic Achievement Center at K-State. The amazing work that every AAC staff member commits to student success inspired me to also find ways to connect fellow peers with all the resources, tools, and support systems offered by K-State to help them meet thier needs and goals."

I am passionate about student success because I believe empowering students benefits the individual and the community as a whole, both on and off campus.
