Artistic Background

Knitro with graduate student

With the help of my PeerKnights Coach, I was able to achieve my goals and continue to grow. Every conversation we had made me 1% better and if you know anything about continuous compounding, I can attest my growth has been exponential. Some of my main achievements so far have been acquiring an internship with Rockwell Automation for Summer 2022, applying to study abroad in the UK in Spring 2023, making the Dean’s List multiple times, and being selected to receive the Excellence in Action Award from the Multicultural Academic & Support Services Office.

The PeerKnight Coaches helps you get acclimated to campus and the different resources available to us. My coach helped me learn more about clubs on campus, how to get more involved, provided ideas for study techniques, and always reassured me that she is always available to talk.

Artistic Background

The PeerKnights Coaching program helped me organize myself when I first began the process of applying to the Character Animation track last semester! Without that, I don’t think I would’ve known where to start. I am glad I had the opportunity to get such amazing guidance and that I was able to set up a structured plan for myself that motivated me to work as hard as possible!

Because of the PeerKnights Coaching Program, I’ve taken academic, professional, and social opportunities I may not have otherwise taken. I received great guidance on what to do next to fulfill my academic needs and help me maintain my GPA.
