Current Commuter Ambassadors
Hind Abokhodair, Class of 2014, firstname.lastname@example.org
My name is Hind Abokhodair. I am an international student here in Suffolk University. I am originally from Saudi Arabia. I currently live in Boston with my twin sister. I am majoring in Finance and I also have a minor in Legal Studies. My future plan after graduating is to get into Law School and hopefully continue in that career path. In general I am a very active person in my life. I love being in the outdoors and enjoy nature. I went camping in New Hampshire in my freshmen year and after I experienced that it became my favorite thing to do in Massachusetts. I have visited many cities during my stay here in the States. I went on a road trip from coast to coast, from the state of Georgia all the way to California. It was a very exciting experience however I established that Boston is my favorite city out of them all.
Andrew King, Class of 2016, email@example.com
I would consider myself a charismatic and enthusiastic communicator who loves to learn about what makes the people and the world around him tick. I am currently majoring in Communications, but have eyes on the school of management. During the year I am active all around campus from working on Program Council to finding homes for students and making sure our commuters feel a part of the Suffolk University Community.
In my limited free time I enjoy the great outdoors, traveling, music and am an avid Scouter. This year I will be planning and managing a weekend, as well as two week long national leadership courses, alongside my responsibilities at school. Teaching leadership and communication skills is one of my passions. Men's fashion is also a guilty pleasure of mine and I dabble in clothing design. I love a good challenge and try to find the artistry behind everything I encounter.
Shampagne Robinson, Class of 2015, firstname.lastname@example.org
I am Shampagne Robinson and I am a junior majoring in Government Politics, Law, and the Courts and minoring in Economics. I have always lived at home but most recently I studied abroad at the Suffolk Madrid campus for the Spring 2013 semester. In addition to living in Madrid, I have also traveled to many different cities like Amsterdam, Netherlands, Brussels, Belgium, Porto, Portugal, and Ocho Rios, Jamaica. I have learned that each city is unique and has its own identity and Boston is no exclusion. Traveling, along with volunteering and spending time with family and friends, is one of the many things I like to do. I have been commuting since my freshmen year and understand the challenges and benefits of commuting to school. I hope to make the experience of living off campus great for everyone this year.
Jarrod Smith, Class of 2014, email@example.com
My name is Jarrod Smith and I am currently approaching my senior year at Suffolk University. I am majoring in Accounting, with a minor in Information Systems Operations Management (or ISOM, to keep it simple). This past summer, I interned with PricewaterhouseCoopers. Although I chose to major in accounting, there are plenty of other fields that I'd like to break into. I believe that, with the right attitude and mindset, anything can be accomplished. I've decided to take on the role as Commuter Ambassador to not only meet fellow commuters, but to also help others feel better about the process. I've commuted 100% of my time here at Suffolk University, so please don't hesitate to reach out to me with any questions and or concerns regarding the commuting lifestyle! I look forward to meeting you.
