Brittany Willis

Brittany is a sophomore in the College of Agriculture, Health and Natural Resources. She is pursuing a bachelor’s degree in Allied Health Sciences following the Pre-Physician’s Assistant Track. Once she receives her bachelor’s, Brittany hopes to continue her studies and receive a master’s degree in Physician Assistant studies with a specialty in dermatology.

She is involved in many clubs and activities around campus. Brittany is an active member in the Physician’s Assistant club and in Greek life on campus. Brittany has a passion for giving back to her community at home as well as at UConn. Some ways she does this is by visiting local women’s shelters, volunteering at a summer camp, working at a nursing home, and participating in Husky-thon. Brittany decided to apply to be a College Ambassador because she remembers how overwhelming it felt when she first came to UConn, and how stressful it was to pick out a major that best fit what she wanted to do with her life. She hopes to help current and perspective students find their way and their passion for their major and to love UConn as much as she does.

Three Pieces of Advice for Prospective Students:

  1. Get involved- UConn is a huge campus and it can be overwhelming at times. The best way to meet people and make friends is by getting involved in clubs, sports, and activities because it makes a big campus feel a lot smaller.
  2. Be Organized! Buy yourself a planner and a calendar and start putting in all of your exam dates and due dates in the second you get your syllabus, so you don’t fall behind.
  3. Try Bodywise! The Student Rec Facility offers so many classes with awesome instructors that make the classes a lot of fun. Bodywise classes are a great way to relieve stress when you need a study break.
