Transcript AMBA (*L DO serving the University or Houston with a dedication and commitment to excellence. NEED SOME INFO? Ambassador Amanda Cooper gives a group a tour of the UC. Photo hy Max Lacayo ALL TOGETHER Ambassadors pose for a picture during orientation. Photo hy Max Lacayo COME IN PLEASE U.H Ambassadors tour tent at Cougar Preview. Photo hy Kevin Harris Do you know how large the Ezekiel W. Cullen Building is? Or that the University of Houston and Rice competed against each other at ice hockey in the 1930s? Chances are you don't — but one group of people does. They are the UH Ambassadors, the students who give daily tours of the campus, and it's their job to know everything they can about the university. The Ambassadors began in the spring of 1984 as a joint effort between the offices of Admissions and Campus Activities. The Ambassadors first major event was Cougar Preview, which began in March 1984 and is now a semesterly event that draws around 3,000 prospective students. Through Cougar Preview, UH was able to reach a large group of potential Cougars (and their parents) and give them a taste of what life at UH is like through tours, advising and question-and- answer periods. The Ambassadors continued giving campus tours, putting on special recruiting events and attending training workshops. In the fall of 1996, they began the Ambassador Buddies, or Ambuds, which allowed incoming freshmen to become Ambassadors through an interview and screening process. Today, all new Ambassadors must complete Ambud training, a semester- long training period during which new members must observe a few veteran Ambassadors tours, familiarize themselves with the campus and successfully give a sample tour. The Ambassadors also help organize Transitions, an orientation session for transfer students, and assist the Office of Admissions in visits to area high schools. "Without the Ambassadors' help, we couldn't do our job recruiting students to the campus," admissions counselor and Ambassadors adviser Jeff Fuller said. "They play that important role in making a student's decision to come here," Fuller said. "We definitely appreciate the work they do."
