Introducing… your Peer Mentors!

My name is Ben Martinez and I am a 21 year old senior majoring in Management, graduating in only 3 ½ years. I am a nice, funny, easy going student who enjoys learning and overall having a fun time. I aspire to have a career in either sports management or information technology, but I am a well-rounded individual and can learn anything quick. From my time here at the university, I have learned that I love helping people. I am always willing to help anyone and even if I do not know how to fix the problem, I’m sure I know someone who can.  I look forward to connecting with you in the future.

I’ve held an internship with Industrial Properties in Reno helping them with social media and setting up computers in the office. I have also interned at REI Drilling in Salt Lake City, Utah. I built two of their websites and did IT work for employees. As of the end of the Summer, I have worked on building a total of four websites.


My name is Lyndsey Bohall. I am a junior majoring in International Business with a minor in Spanish. After graduating, I am considering law school, but my ultimate goal is to go into the sports industry. Eventually, I hope to work for FIFA putting on the World Cup. In college, I’ve been involved in quite a few different clubs and organizations; for example, I am a Business Scholar Leader, the Vice President of Finance for Sigma Kappa Sorority, the Vice President of Business Student Council, and I have been a part of the Nevada Women’s Lacrosse team. Outside of school, I have been an AmeriCorp VISTA and an intern for Reno-Tahoe Open of the PGA TOUR. Currently, I am a student worker for the College of Business. In my free time, I like to snowboard, watch my favorite sports teams including Nevada, of course, and spend time with my friends.

My name is Rachel Fransen. I am a senior with an expected graduation date of May 2013, and I am dual majoring in Marketing and Management. I grew up in Minden, Nevada and decided to stick close to home for college. Upon completing my freshman year here at UNR, I decided I needed a little more adventure so I spent the summer of 2010 studying abroad with USAC (UNR’s study abroad program) in Bilbao, Spain. Spain forced me to get out of my comfort zone, become fluent in Spanish, and learn to adapt to another culture. I feel that it is a big part of who I am today and will always be one of the greatest experiences of my life. I am still involved with USAC in recruitment and alumni events, and in order to get more involved with the College of Business I joined the professional business fraternity, Delta Sigma Pi, and I volunteer for the Peer Mentor Program. After graduation I plan to move to a larger city and pursue a career in Management.

My goal is guide the students for their first semester of college and to prepare them for the upcoming years.
