Ambassador Profile

Hey there! My name is Dylan and I'm a junior in Chemical and Biomolecular Engineering. I'm really excited you are considering the University of Tennessee!

I'm from a small town called Winfield, Tennessee. It was a bit of a culture shock coming from a small community. However, being a part of a large student body has exposed me to many cultures, perspectives, and ideas that I never had the opportunity to experience before.

While engineering requires quite a bit of time and effort, it is still possible to be involved in multiple other campus organizations. I'm a member of both the Pride of the Southland Marching Band and the UT Symphonic Band. Even though these two organizations also have big time commitments, they are a fantastic outlet to take a break from engineering. I'm also a member of the Spanish Club and a Hispanic Studies minor. As engineering students, we are not required to study a foreign language, but learning about another language and cultureĀ has given me a broader perspective of global issues and provided me with some amazing opportunities. Last summer, I spent a month studying abroad in Costa Rica which was an unforgettable experience!

Outside of class and organizations, I also work as a research assistant in a metabolic engineering lab. It is a great way to apply concepts learned in class and to experience what it is like to work in your field.

Coming to the University of Tennessee was one of the best decisions I have ever made. I am very excited to share my experiences and would be glad to answer any questions you may have!
