Feifan Yang, a 2016 graduate from China, didn’t get a chance to tour JMU before deciding to enroll at the University. But soon after arriving on campus in 2013, Yang fell in love with the place and the welcoming atmosphere. Since then, she has become active in student activities, developing into a leader across campus and in the College of Business (CoB), where she majored in computer information systems (CIS).  

This spring, Yang received numerous awards on campus, including the Carrier Award for Outstanding Personal Pursuit of Leadership Development--one of the Dolley Leadership Awards. A finalist for the CIS & BSAN Outstanding Senior Award, she also received the 2016 University Community Impact Award to the Chinese Student Association. She also received a 2016 NAACP Image Award, the Unsung Hero Award.

Yan was a research assistant for CIS professor John Guo last summer, contributing her skills of data collection and analysis to a paper that received Best Paper Award at an international workshop summit. She also was a student assistant for the Office of International Students and Scholars’ LINK Program, serving as a mentor for new international students to help them adjust to the culture and life at JMU.
