A Conversation with Amanda Scott
What would you tell a student who is thinking about attending A&M-Commerce?
I would tell them that it is an amazing place to study and grow as a person. We are one big family, no matter what you are studying. You are a lion for life. After graduating, you will recognize the pride that Texas A&M University-Commerce gives its students. Lion graduates are self-sufficient, curious and driven members of a global society.
What do you like most about your career?
I love being able to see students learn and grow as they progress through their degree. I see their personalities blossom in this exhilarating environment. The trust they have in my guidance is what can set them apart in their academic journey and I take pride in building that trust while we are together in their time as an undergraduate.
How do you help students at A&M-Commerce?
As an academic advisor, my purpose is to help students be successful in navigating their academic careers. My main goal is for students to walk out of an advising appointment with a new lease on their academics, whether that be through giving resources the university has to offer, guiding them through scheduling or general encouragement as they make tough decisions about their future. Being a successful academic advisor is beyond telling students which classes to take in a semester and reprimanding them for failing a course. Academic advising helps students grow as people. Through their academics, they will reach a higher understanding of the world around them.
