Graduating Student Ambassador

Students in our College who volunteer in their sophomore or junior years to become student ambassadors are trained to help new and prospective students personalize their experiences in our College. Ambassadors learn leadership and communications skills, and train in all of our academic programs to provide expertise about what our College has to offer. They conduct tours, visit high schools, help with events for parents and students, and serve on an advisory committee. They also recruit new students and mentor them. Once ambassadors earn their degrees, we honor them as graduating student ambassadors. Our College thanks them for their hard work, dedication and sacrifice, as they have made a difference for our College and our students.

Mirabel Dafione earned her bachelor’s degree in biochemistry & molecular biology. She completed her senior thesis in the Seungil Ro lab, and she plans to continue as a graduate student in the University’s School of Medicine. She says, "I am so happy that I choose to pursue my education at the University! I have made countless memories throughout the years. I am thankful for all the professors who served as my mentors and guided me through my journey. I am also grateful for all the wonderful friends I made along the way. I am excited to continue my journey as a member of the University of Nevada, Reno School of Medicine Class of 2024!"
