Ashley Berry Admitted to UT Austin!

Congratulations to mentee Ashley Berry of DeSoto High School in DeSoto, Texas who was admitted today to her first choice college University of Texas Austin!

Why UT Austin?

She decided to apply to UT Austin because of the university’s amazing honors programs (Plan II and Liberal Arts Honors) and the resources available for undergraduates. She also chose UT because of the unique Oxford Summer Program run through the English department which enables to UT students to study at Oxford University.

College Plans

At UT, Ashley hopes to study English language and literature along with creative writing. She’s excited to try all sorts of new things in college like archery once she gets to college but is also hoping to further develop her interests in creative writing and film criticism (and maybe even a Collegiate Blog mentor?).


Ashley’s favorite part of the mentoring program has been the network of motivated high school seniors who have been helping each other get through the college process together.
