The panel discussion was part of the Collat Student Success Series developed by Dr. Jennifer L. Wycoff, Student Success Manager. In its third fall term, the primary focus of the success series is to promote student success by helping students develop skills to Enhance their academic experience, Explore majors and careers, and Engage with student involvement. This success series aligns with the Collat School of Business strategic goals to “deliver innovative educational programs that stimulate growth, student success and financial sustainability”.

Each fall the success series provides opportunities for students to learn about skills needed to become a successful Collat School of Business student. During the student-to-student panel, students discuss their path to UAB, ways to bounce back from adversity and their advice to new students on getting involved. This year Dr. Wycoff collaborated with Ms. Elizabeth Turnbull who teaches the Intro to business courses to bring this series to all students who are new to UAB and the Collat School of Business. Business Student Leaders serve as ambassadors to Collat School of Business events and presented valuable insight to our new students during this panel discussion.
