The last two years, I’ve had the privilege of being a part of Cleveland University-Kansas City’s campus ambassador program. The program is set up with the admissions office to connect prospective students with current students. This provides an opportunity for the prospective student to get a feel for what a day in the life of a Clevelander is like. The main part of my duties involves giving tours to students interested in our program. I show them around and answer questions as we go. I see myself in some of those students and smile.
I was there once. It was about three years ago when I came to visit the campus and took a tour. I remember the campus ambassador that showed me around. I really appreciated his point of view and opinion about the program. it was one of the things that sold me on Cleveland. Providing that sort of a visit for prospective students is always my goal. I want them to see what’s so great about our institution. Yes, I receive a scholarship for the work, but they don’t need to pay me to say certain things. I don’t have to lie or stretch the truth about Cleveland to make things sound or seem better than they are. I’m happy to be able to tell them exactly how it is, because I have so many great things to say about my experience and where I am. I’m proud to say I’m a Clevelander and also a campus ambassador.
