Transcript A WARM idflrs^rnwnew students feel welcome When choosing a university, it is often difficult to get an accurate idea of the school simply from brochures and faculty interviews. For this reason, the UH ambassadors stepped in, offering a students perspective on campus life to interested high schoolers. The job of the Ambassadors was to acquaint prospective students with the school, from the point of view of a fellow student. They did this by working with the admissions office to find interested students, then calling to inform them of upcoming campus events. They also attended College Nights at many area high schools, handing out information and answering questions. Another significant responsibility for the Ambassadors was working with transfer students to help familiarize them with the school. This helped the students to feel more at home and less intimidated on an unfamiliar place. To become an Ambassador, a student had to FALL IN! An Ambassador leads her group of visitors on a campus tour. The Ambassadors often conducted tours for elementary students who came to see the University.

There was a thorough interview process at the beginning of each semester, and those chosen were required uphold a 2.5 minimum GPA. They also conducted at least one campus tour per week and two group tours per semester, although most did more. There were many advantages to becoming an Ambassador. "I wanted to join an organization where I would meet a lot of people from different majors" said senior Alan Panek, a hotel and restaurant management major and the president of the Ambassadors. Like other members of the group, Panek joined after seeing the Ambassadors in action and wishing to get involved. It had many positive effects for its members: it helped get them familiar with the campus, improve their speaking skills, and meet new friends. It also gave them the satisfaction of knowing that they helped make the transition to UH a bit easier for many students. -Ashley Grubbs CHATTING IT UP Two Ambassadors talked as they led their group to the next stop on the campus tour. Touring the campus was a good way for visitors to learn about the University.
