Hey, My name is Derek Prillaman!

I am excited to serve as a mentor because I really enjoyed BADM 100 as a student. As a mentor, I will make myself available and help the best I can.

A life lesson learned: Take time to enjoy where you’re at in life

For fun: Fishing, hunting, wakeboarding, waterskiing, club tennis, golf

Involvement: Phi Beta Lambda membership recruitment rep, Business Fellow, Ducks Unlimited, Club tennis

Something unique: I moved schools junior year of high school and only went 9 days before I was out for two months due to a hurricane.

Binge-Watching: Outer Banks

Favorite Class: Business Law

One Struggle I’ve had at College: Learning how to balance everything

When you’re packing, don’t forget:  Your golf clubs
