Jose Flores Rodriguez

Jose Flores Rodriguez

Major: Accounting

Hometown: Monterrey, N.L., Mexico

Memberships and Organizations: Currently, I am involved with the Ted Bauer Undergraduate Business Scholarship Program as a Scholar, and the Student Housing and Residential Life Department as a Resident Advisor. In the past, I have been involved with the Ted Bauer Leadership Certificate Program as a mentee and mentor, the Emerging Leaders Academic Success Program as a participant, a Desk Assistant in Student Housing, Peer Assistant for Bauer Orientations 2018, and member of the Hispanic Business Student Association. I am beyond excited and grateful to be involved with Bauer Ambassadors this school year.

Favorite College Memory: My favorite college memory was Fall 2018 in general, specifically being a mentor for the Emerging Leaders Academic Success Program for Transfer students at Bauer. This was the first time I got to lead a group of students throughout their first semester at the University of Houston as Bauer and transfer students, only after one semester of having being a transfer student myself. Through one-on-one meetings, workshops, and socials, I was able to guide my 17 mentees to successfully finish their fall semester and continue their studies at a four-year university. I learned so much from all of my mentees and about my capabilities which was a truly humbling experience.

Why Did You Choose Bauer: When I graduated from high school in 2017, my plan was to attend UT Austin (which I did). I was very excited and ready to start my educational career at a top-tier university that fall semester. This was also the same period when Hurricane Harvey hit Houston, so I left the city with a dull and dark image of Houston. Because of this and medical matters going on back home, around October of 2017, I decided that it would be best for me to transfer from UT Austin to the University of Houston for Spring 2018 to help my family and come back to UT Austin the semester after. So, I transferred and, in all honesty, it has been the best decision I have ever made. As soon as I started my classes, I realized how friendly and welcoming everyone (including the faculty and staff) were to the diverse student body. I joined the ELASP for Transfers program that semester and gained a network of friends in Bauer that I still keep in contact with to this day. I also managed to obtain a job as a Desk Assistant at the Housing Office that spring semester where my network expanded beyond Bauer. After much involvement, I also scored two part-time jobs at Bauer as a Peer Assistant in the Summer and Peer Mentor in the Fall 2018 semester. That Summer, I also received the Ted Bauer Undergraduate Business Scholarship which is helping me cover my last two years of undergrad studies. It is safe to say, I had too many great opportunities holding me back to stay at UH.

All of this happened within the one semester that I transferred to Bauer. One. Semester. I did not necessarily choose Bauer from the beginning, but I am beyond grateful and humbled that Bauer opened its door to me when I transferred and took me in as a student because I had no idea of what I was missing out until I transferred. Bauer is THE place for opportunities and challenges. It is where I have been able to grow professionally, emotionally, and personally. I am beyond grateful for being a Bauer student and can attest to the fact that this is #WhereAwesomeHappens.
