Tiffany Crespo - President

Tiffany

Hi, my name is Tiffany Crespo, and I am a Senior at George Mason University. I’m 21 years old, and I am from Richmond Virginia. I am the President of the School of Integrative Studies Peer Ambassadors. I am majoring in Integrative Studies with a concentration in Legal Studies and minoring in Childhood Studies. I was in the 3+3 program with the Antonin Scalia Law School, so I am very familiar with how the law application works and what the program entails. My goal is to become a Guardian Ad Litem in the family courts. Being a part of the School of Integrative Studies has made my college experience impactful. Being in discussion-based classes that were reading and writing intensive has not only prepared me for law school but has also helped me excel in ways I never believed I could. I love everything that SIS has done for me, and I have never regretted my decision about being a part of such a school .If you have any questions, please feel free to reach out! tcrespo@gmu.edu

 

Shannon Nachreiner – Vice President

Hello, my name is Shannon Nachreiner. I am a sophomore, and I’m the vice president of the SIS Ambassadors. My major is Integrative Studies with a concentration in Social Science for Education. I love learning about history; I’m very patriotic. I have lived in Fairfax all my life, but GMU is like my home away from home. Though I commute to school, I’m also involved in the GMU Young Life club. I love working with people in the Integrative Studies program. Everyone is so welcoming and awesome in helping me plan for my future as a teacher. The main reason I love the Integrative Studies program is that it allows me to experience hands-on learning where I can easily connect with my professors and peers. The Integrative Studies program has definitely made me thankful for the opportunities I have at George Mason University. SISpeerambassadors@gmail.com

Jennifer Godbolt

Hi! My name is Jennifer Godbolt. I am a freshman here at George Mason and I
am majoring in Integrative Studies with a concentration in legal studies and a minor in
Spanish. I’m from Richmond, Virginia originally and I came to George Mason to be
closer to Washington, D.C. and I stumbled upon the Integrative Studies program. I
graduated high school with an International Bachelorette diploma and I have found that
the discussion based style of Integrative Studies is very similar to the style of IB. I have
found that this style of learning not only adds to my educational experience but also to
my ability to be a well-rounded student!

Kelsey Jones

My name is Kelsey Jones and I am a senior at George Mason University this year.  I joined INTS my sophomore year of college and decided to pursue a concentration in Advertising. I absolutely love the School of Integrative Studies; students have so many options for classes and it is obvious that the professors and the advisors really want you to succeed. I think that students majoring in Integrative Studies have a deep understanding of their respective concentrations because of the collaborative and experiential elements associated with the major.  I love feeling so prepared for my future and knowing that I have people within the INTS community who can help me move forward in my career.

Rebecca Mattern

rm

Hey! My name is Rebecca Mattern and I am junior with a concentration in Childhood Studies
and a minor in Developmental Psychology. I transferred to Mason for the Integrative Studies
program in 2016 because I was drawn to its experiential learning, discussion-based, and
competency-focused education style. Before attending university, I was living in New York City
and training to become a classical ballet dancer. I now teach ballet at my home studio in Reston,
VA and am involved in a service-oriented dance club on campus called Movement Exchange. As
a member, I have taught locally at the Boys and Girls Club and abroad at orphanages in Panama.
After graduation, I plan to pursue a master's degree in school counseling. I love that Mason has
provided me the means to combine all my areas of interest and I am so grateful to the School of
Integrative Studies for helping me achieve my goals! rmatter2@masonlive.gmu.edu

Suraya Ranjber

sn
Hi, my name is Suraya Ranjber. I am a Mason Transfer Student, majoring in Integrative
Studies with a concentration in International Studies. As a transfer student, I had to find my way
around the school and make new friends. I found that the classes in Integrative studies are very
discussion based and an open friendly environment which helps when trying to make friends. I
try and get involved the most I can on campus, I always know when there are fun activities on
campus and free goodies. I work on campus and do a lot outside of campus as well. On my free
time I often have picnics with friends, when the weather is warm enough. I also have been doing
theater for as long as I can remember and continue to for fun as much as I can. I have always
been known to be organized, it is the only way I can make time for school, work, clubs and
friends. sranjber@masonlive.gmu.edu
