I help students connect with experiences that they might not have known are possible in their undergraduate career, such as the Honors undergraduate research experience.

Brittney Yager grew up in a small, East Texas town similar to Commerce. She attended A&M-Commerce after receiving a scholarship and was thrilled to find a welcoming community and support system that truly cared about her success and invested in her growth. As a Latina member of the LGBTQ+ community, she is passionate about helping students of all identities find their place to fit in and people who value them for who they are.

How can I help you?

I help students connect with experiences that they might not have known are possible in their undergraduate career, such as the Honors undergraduate research experience. In addition, I help recruit students to the Honors College and facilitate their transfer from high school to their first semester of college. I also teach classes for the freshman first-year experience as well as research seminar courses.

A Conversation with Brittney

What do you like most about your career?

I am privileged to meet our students in their final semester of high school when they apply for our program. The part I enjoy the most is helping them along the way to complete their degree requirements and eventually congratulate them at their graduation reception! It's a true joy to see these students grow and blossom during their time at A&M-Commerce.
