Hi guys, I’m Anna and I’m from Collierville, TN. I am double majoring in Biology- Ecology and Evolution and Global Studies. My main involvements on campus are through the Honors College and the Center for Leadership and Service. I love soccer and I’ve been playing for about 13 years now. I’m also a lover of music and look forward to my second time going to Bonnaroo this summer. Travelling is another thing that I love. I have been to Ireland, Mexico, and Italy and I cannot wait to study abroad the fall of my junior year. I also love the University of Tennessee and I can’t wait to help you with anything you need to make UT feel like home. I just finished my freshman year so I remember all the anxieties and questions I had about college life coming in. I can’t wait to meet you all this fall and we’re going to have a great year together!

Hey I’m Robby Pedersen, and I can’t wait to be your honors peer mentor in the fall! I have been around Knoxville all my life, and a Vol fan just as long. I love studying anything about science or philosophy, especially about the brain. Outside of class I teach CrossFit and will try just about anything physically active (and frequently hurt myself in the process). I am a caffeine addict and normally have a cup of coffee in my hand. Fall 2014 will be the beginning of my senior year so I would be happy to share the most important lessons I have learned in the last three years, mostly which restaurants have deals on what day. If you have any real questions I would love to hear from you all so please email me at any time! Go VOLS!

Hey Honors Vols! I’m a sophomore from Maryville, Tennessee. I work for RecSports at the awesome workout facilities here at UT! I’d love to show you all around the TRECS, my home away from home. Chances are you will see me there anyways! I enjoy getting inVOLved in any and all intramurals that are available. I also love to meet new people and explore new interests by checking out volunteer opportunities via the Center for Leadership and Service, including my personal favorite, Boo at the Zoo! I am so excited to meet all of you all, and I can’t wait to help you find your way to get inVOLved at UT! Congrats for being such smart cookies to be selected for the Chancellor’s Honors Program! I can’t wait to make some new friends and share all my sophomore wisdom about this fabulous, fun, awesome university with you!
