                Academic Coach

                  Hi guys! My name is Divya and I will be a senior majoring in both Neuroscience and Psychology with a cluster in Spanish. This will be my second year being a TOUR coach. On campus I'm involved in clubs like GlobeMed and the BCS/Neuroscience Undergraduate Council. I'm also working on research and volunteering at the hospital. For fun, I like to try new foods, go on road trips, and work on my own do-it-yourself projects. I look forward to meeting you!

                  Ashley Sibanda

                  Academic Coach

                    I am a Chemical Engineering major and am slightly obsessed with East Asia (hence the cluster in Korean). I am Zimbabwean and currently reside in England. Two years ago I committed to completing my undergraduate studies in the USA at the U of R. It's safe to say that I greatly value global awareness.
