Student Ambassador Profile: Brianna Woolfolk, BSEE ’20

Name: Brianna Woolfolk
Class: 2020
Hometown: Miami
Major: Environmental Engineering

Why did you apply to be a student ambassador?
I want to encourage students to come to this university and experience the many things that it has to offer. In addition, it comforts me to know that I can aid incoming students by giving them advice based on the struggles I faced and overcame in my freshman year.

What advice would you offer to new engineering students?
It may seem overwhelming initially, but it’s all just part of the process. With proper planning, and dedication, studying and even perceiving information in lectures will become easier.

What do you feel is unique about being a student at UM College of Engineering?
The UM College of Engineering is unique to other schools because it is a close-knit community. The faculty and staff are easy to reach and make efforts to comfort students throughout their first year, even by doing things such as scheduling engineering students in classes together.

Describe what you are doing in this position.
In this position, I am talking to perspective families and students about my experience here at the University of Miami as well as informing these families about what we have to offer here.                                                                                                                    

What did you learn at CoE that has helped you in your position?
At CoE, I learned how to research potential internships and job opportunities, as well as resume-building skills.

Which College student organization stands out to you and why?
The First Year Fellows (FYF) stand out to me because they are here to aid incoming students in the transition into college. Transitioning and adapting to the academic self- dependence on a college campus can be extremely difficult, and thus I feel the FYF organization is vital.

What do you feel you are getting out of this position?
I feel like this position is helping me to gain public relations experience as well giving me the benefit of knowing that I am contributing to my school.

Why has this been a good experience for you?
This has been a good experience for me because, in upholding my position, I have also made new friendships and learned more about my fellow ambassadors’ experiences that could even help me in my time here at the University of Miami.

What did you do during your summer 2017 break?
During my summer 2017, I held two jobs: one in a restaurant and the other in the logistics department of a department store.
