The student organizations within McCombs and UT allowed me first to find my identity and confidence as a student leader, which I was then able to expand upon and carry into the professional world. McCombs created such a cooperative environment that empowered students to tap into their potential and encouraged an open exchange of advice, ideas, and opportunities.
