Simran KaurSimran Kaur
Major: Fire Protection Technology/Business Administration
Bilingual: Hindi/Punjabi

Hello, my name is Simran Kaur. I am currently a Sophomore attending Mission College. My minor is in Fire Protection Technology and my long term major is Business Administration. My goal is to maintain an AS Degree and get certified as an EMT( Emergency Medical Technician) well-being at Mission College and then transfer out to either UC Berkeley or University of Washington to further complete my studies in Business Administration. I’m also a Student Ambassador at our very own Mission College Welcome Center. As an Ambassador I make sure students will find all their academic administrative needs to facilitate success in their education. I decided to become a Student Ambassador because I love working with people, especially helping students who need the help with guidance in the right direction. My goal as an ambassador is to provide new and continuing students a supportive entry into Mission College by assisting students with Admission, Registration, Financial Aid applications such as FAFSA and The Board of Governors Fee Waiver Application which is also known as the BOG Fee Waiver. We also provide students with college tours of our beautiful campus, along with Scholarship, Counseling and Transfer Resources.
