Tori Fell is a junior majoring in life sciences and minoring in leadership studies. She chose this major because she wants to be a Physician’s Assistant, while minoring in leadership studies allows her to be more involved and help out the Manhattan community.
“I enjoy helping people and being a PA will allow me to meet new people on an everyday basis,” Fell said. “I picked a major that is not purely science to make sure that I am a more rounded person and I will be able to relate to people on a personal level and not just from a science perspective.”
Fell is an Education and Training Fraternity and Sorority Life Ambassador, as well as involved in Order of Omega, Pre-PA Club, Pre-Med Club, and Cat Crew. She also gives tours to prospective K-State students. Along with her on-campus involvement, she also helps with the KSU Blood Drives, K-State Dance Marathon, and she is a William Newton Hospital Volunteer Coordinator.
“All of my activities have improved my college experience, however I believe that giving tours to prospective K-State students is one that has benefited me the most. The students are normally excited to be on a tour at K-State and their excitement reinforces my love for K-State even though I have been here for three years,” Fell said. “Telling students and their parents why K-State is a great university is such a great way to give back to K-State.”
Fell picked Theta because everyone was friendly and she could tell that the women were genuine and would care about her.
“I picked Theta because I could tell that I was going to be the best person I could be because of the opportunities that were offered,” Fell said. “Theta allows for women to gain leadership skills and learn how to be better women.”
Through Theta, Fell has been able to build on her leadership experience by holding the positions of Finance Assistant as well as Chief Financial Officer. She has also formed many new friendships that will last beyond her years as K-State.
“Theta has taught me life skills, like how to live with 70 girls who have different personalities,” Fell said. “Theta is a place that I have come to love because it will always be the place that I will consider my home in college. “
