4. Favourite summer treat - ICE CREAM!
5. One movie that makes you cry every time you watch it A Fault in our Stars
6. What app do you use the most? - Snapchat. I LOVE THE FILTERS
7. Why do you want to be an FYE leader? To encourage and help guide first year students to excel in University, to believe in themselves, and to help them find out who they really.
8. What's one piece of advice you have for incoming freshmen? It's okay to have fun! Yes studying is extremely important but it's more important to have a healthy balance of school work, time with God, and engaging in friendships. Also, don't be too afraid or anxious, the Lord has you in His hands. Rely on Him!
We are less than two months away from Fall 2017 New Student Orientation! We are busily preparing all the final details for a fun, engaging and informative three-day program for all our new students. Be sure to register for the event at https://ambrose.edu/orientation2017.
