Alexandra Flevarakis Alexandra Flevarakis

Nov. 13, 2015 – Alexandra Flevarakis of Fairfax, Virginia, a junior majoring in wildlife conservation, is among a new set of student ambassadors selected by Virginia Tech’s Office of Undergraduate Research for the 2015-16 academic year.

Each ambassador, representing a diverse set of academic disciplines and research experience, was hand-selected during a competitive application, recommendation, and interview process. The ambassadors’ responsibilities include hosting weekly office hours and information sessions on undergraduate research. By providing this peer relationship, students have the opportunity to come to the ambassadors to ask general questions about getting involved in research on or off campus, how to share research results broadly, and how to get the most out of these experiences.

“I’m excited to be given the opportunity to help my peers and further their involvement at Virginia Tech,” Flevarakis said. “This school has such an amazing sense of community, respect, and a great devotion to research, which I’m excited to inspire in others.”
