Why do you choose to be involved as a FACS Ambassador?

A love for FACS runs in my blood. Almost all of the most influential women (i.e.- my mom, my grandmother, my aunt…) in my life have graduated from FACS. I wanted to have a way to share my love and enthusiasm for FACS with other students in the Athens community and beyond. The Ambassador program is a great way to do that!

What is your most memorable experience at UGA?

I had the privilege of studying abroad through UGA at Oxford in the summer of 2013. As corny as it sounds, that trip was a dream-come-true for me! All of the hard work was totally worth it.

What advice would you give to a student thinking about changing their major to FACS?

I would say that if you’re on the fence about changing your major to FACS, do it. After minoring in HDFS for a year, I made the decision to make it my major the first semester of my junior year. I can say from personal experience that FACS is the most student-friendly college I’ve encountered on campus. Plus, the knowledge you learn in the classroom will be something that you carry with you throughout your life. As my mom, a Home Economics major, likes to say, “I use my degree everyday!”
