What has been the most rewarding part about working at the Sanger Center?
The most rewarding part has been becoming a resource to my friends on campus. Because I know how the Sanger Center works and the opportunities we offer, I am able to help out a friend in need. I also find it very rewarding when students come in to the office worried or nervous and leave after their session feeling confident and positive!
What has been the most surprising or unexpected aspect of your job?
It is surprising how close I have become with the other student associates. We are a close group of friends, not just coworkers. To me, this is more than just a job. I enjoy coming in and learning more about my peers.
What advice would you give to incoming students about being academically successful at UT?
Use your resources! College is a very different experience than high school. You don’t have anyone telling you what to do, so you have to take initiative when you need help. Taking that first step and reaching out to your professor, TA, the Sanger Learning Center, or the University Writing Center is so important in order to be successful at UT.
