Plans after graduation: After graduation I plan to attain my Masters at West Texas A&M in upper-level education. I want to be an advisor at the great university of WT. It has taken me so long to figure out what I want to do with my life; I hope to help others figure out sooner without wasting as many resources as I did!

Most important advice for new transfer students: Get involved on campus and learn how to study! These are huge factors in a successful (and enjoyable!) experience at college!

Classification: Senior
Major: Management
Previous college/university attended: Amarillo College
Hometown: Panhandle, TX

Plans after graduation: I plan to obtain an office management position as I build my personal capital to the point where I can start my own business as a boutique owner and operator. My merchandise will include home décor, handmade quilts, refinished furniture, and other items.

Most important advice for new transfer students: My advice to transfer stuents would be to make this opportunity yours. This is your chance to be the person you want to be. You don't have to be who you were before. If you were shy, bring out your inner spirit and be the loud crazy one! If you weren't the best student before, West Texas A&M is the perfect place to call home; don't be afraid to get out, get involved, and create lasting memories!
