Meet Peer Mentor: Abby Strickland

Hi friend! I’m Abby Strickland!

I want to help you feel comfortable in the Business School. As a mentor, I will give advice and point you to the right resources.

Advice for first-year students: You’re going to be invited to a lot of things; don’t be afraid to say no.

Also, make your syllabi your best friends!

For fun: spend time with family & friends, hand-lettering, reading

Involvement: Business Scholar, marketing club, small group, Lillington Boys & Girls club

Something unique: I have the rarest combination of hair and eye color – blue eyes and red hair.

Binge-Watching/Reading: Nothing to Prove by Jennie Allen

One Struggle I’ve had at College: Perfectionism – I have overcome that by managing my expectations and giving myself grace.

When you’re packing, don’t forget: Rain boots/rain coat; a fan
