Transcript FRIENDLY INTRO Ambassadors greet and inform visitors new to campus Have you ever been walking across campus and seen a person walking backwards, leading a large group of people and espousing facts about one of our many edifices? If you have, you probably saw a UH Ambassador giving one of their famous campus tours. One way or another, all of us had a first visit to the campus. Once here, we were probably all a bit overwhelmed by the size and complexity of the campus. One of the primary functions of the Ambassadors is to extend a warm greeting to new visitors and students, and to make that first visit to campus a favorably memorable one. The most popular greeting that UHA give to new students is the campus tour. A campus tour starts at the Ezekiel Cullen Building and then proceeds to cir- cum-navigate the campus. James Booker, UHA President sums up a UHA tour by saying that "Campus tours provide a unique opportunity for students to learn about the campus while they recieve special one-on-one attention. The tour enables prospective students to get a real student's viewpoint on campus life. On their tour, the students get to ask the kinds of questions they may not ask the administrator/' Each Ambassador is carefully trained to give a careful and comprehensive tour of the campus. Tours may take anywhere from fourty minutes to an hour to complete. The largest undertaking of the Ambassadors is also one of the largest events on campus. Ambassadors coordinate, plan, staff, and run the semi-annual campus open house known as Cougar Preview. Cougar Preview is a giant function where students can come and take a look at the university close-up. The program is held once in the fall and once in the spring on selected Saturdays beginning at 9:00 am UHA advisor Stella Musick skillfully coordinated these preview sessions. With close to two thousand students attending each preview, the students have a multitude of opportunities to meet and talk with professors, tour campus and talk with currently enrolled students. Prospective students eventually get to break off into interset groups where they can discuss any questions they have concerning college life. These groups include college majors, financial aid and Honors program. Towards the end of the day, they attend a special "students only" session known as student scoop. There they can speak freely about anything they wish, with no parents or administrators around them. During this time, parents have their own special session where they can ask questions with no children around them. Farian Jones, a sophomore Ambassador says, "Cougar Preview goes by too fast. Its a unique and casual way for students to met other students and faculty. The Preview gives them the opportunity to see the school close-up and get their questions answered. There is nothing more thrilling than to hear a student at the end of the day say 'I can't wait until next fall to come here!" The Ambassadors actively participate in various other campus functions as well. Many important events extend invitations to the Ambassadors, such as the annual Homecoming Brunch and the Alumni Business. The Ambassadors also participate in the Texas Association of College Recruiters and Admissions Officers (TACRAO). With this program, the Ambassadors go out to area high schools to recruit for UH. ► Jerry Chrisman Ambassadors ■ 143
