Nicolas Uribe

Nicolas Uribe, from Guayaquil, Ecuador will graduate with a degree in management with a focus in international business and minor in leadership studies. He serves as a member of the Alpha Kappa Psi, Beta Gamma Sigma and Phi Theta Kappa.

He also serves as a member of the public relations/sales team for The Daily Athenaeum, an admissions ambassador for international students and food courier supervisor with WVU Dining Services.

Uribe has immersed himself in the “cultural heartbeat” of the University and his new community and has shown resilience to challenges posed to him as an international student. He has been involved in extracurricular activities, served as a mentor to first-year students and volunteered his time for community service while demonstrating academic excellence.

Designed to accelerate the professional goals of high-performing students in the Chambers College, he was accepted into the Career Readiness Program and he has earned the BB&T Emerging Leaders Certification, a highly interactive program that equips students with tools to become more effective leaders.

In recognition of his academic achievement and leadership skills, he was selected by the WVU Leadership Studies Program as a Milan Puskar Scholar, a competitively selected student enrichment program.

Uribe also serves as student recruiter for WVU International Students & Scholars Services and a student leader for the Department’s New Student Orientation Program.

One of his most rewarding experiences was his capstone project when he worked with the non-profit organization Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance to conduct research on mental health issues in the greater Morgantown community and provided feedback to the organization on how to better serve this population.

After graduation, he will pursue his master’s degree in human resource management and seek a graduate assistant position that will allow him to give back to his community.
