Meet the 2023 Junior Jumpstart Student Ambassador

Junior Jumpstart is an annual conference with a significant presence on campus every May. The conference initiates the final stages of the academic journey, as students rise up into their final year at WashU. Juniors have the opportunity to engage with recent alumni, field experts, and leaders to learn how to transition through life after graduation.

During the pandemic, the conference shifted to a remote-learning format, but 2023 Junior Jumpstart is slated to take place in-person on Thursday, May 11.

Organizing this conference is no small feat. A planning committee — consisting of deans, directors, and advisors from across campus — collaborate all year to plan event programs, coordinate logistics, market Junior Jumpstart, and more. Student perspective is indispensable to assure a dynamic, relevant, and effective conference.

For the Class of 2024, the Junior Jumpstart committee enthusiastically welcomes Becky Sun to serve on the planning committee and be the official Junior Jumpstart Ambassador!
