My Final Year
Welcome back to Texas
A&M for what is hopefully another great year!
It dawns on me that I am now a senior, meaning this is my last
year as an undergraduate student here at TAMU. Whoop! It seems like
just yesterday I was meeting with the BIMS advisers to discuss what
my first semester schedule would be. It’s interesting to consider
what being a senior really means. It means some things are coming
to an end and other things are just beginning.
For one, this will be my final year as a student ambassador, a
job I’ve appreciated greatly since I started as a sophomore. This
job has taught me several things over the years. It’s allowed me to
see firsthand the excitement this university and our vet school can
bring to prospective students. Seeing the passion these future
Aggies have for their educations, and for animals, is inspiring.
I’m grateful for the opportunity I’ve had to help acquaint guests
with our top-notch facilities, and, fortunately, I still have the
whole year to continue leading tours and meeting future
I only have two more semesters of classes, as well. Right now,
it looks like I’ll be mostly taking classed related to my minors,
public health and occupational safety and health. Considering that
I plan to apply to Texas A&M's wonderful public health grad
school, that’s an exciting schedule. I’m starting to get more
involved with public health-centered curricula and getting to see
another side of health promotion. I’ve even begun to start
searching for summer internships in order to gain more experience
relating to workplace safety. Texas A&M offers are some great
opportunities in that realm.
All in all, this is shaping up to be another wonderful year. I
can only hope the same goes for all of my fellow Aggies. While this
may be my final year as an undergraduate, I look forward to what
the future brings. I hope it brings the best for all of us and am
optimistic it will.
