Ashley Barlow

(2022, BIT Major)

Why did you pick your major and what’s your dream job?

  • I love the balance of hard skills and soft skills. It also has a lot of job opportunities! My favorite part about my major is learning how to use technology, like Excel, to solve problems. My dream job is working with PwC!

What advice do you have for Pamplin students?

  • I suggest that you go to Gobblerfest and join some organizations! Both professional and social ones :) With online courses, even if a class is asynchronous, plan a specific time each week to do the work for it so you stay on track!

If you’ve studied abroad, where did you go and how was your experience?

  • I studied abroad with the Presidential Global Scholars program (through the honors college). Although it was cut short because of COVID, my two months in Switzerland were definitely the best ones of my life! I loved the opportunity to immerse myself in a different culture!

What is your favorite part about being a peer advisor? 

  • My favorite part about being a peer advisor is sharing my experiences and advice with students!
