Here is what current Student Ambassador have to say about their experience:
 
As a former Student Ambassador, I am grateful for the many opportunities the program afforded me. During my 2 years as an ambassador, I not only got to meet many people and make important contacts for career building, but I gained leadership and communication skills that have proved to be a strong asset for me in the workplace! I highly recommend and encourage all individuals with a drive for success to apply for the Student Ambassador program! You will never regret the knowledge you will gain, the people you will meet, or the fun you will have!
-Kelli Edwards, former Student Ambassador
 
I would have to say that my time as an SCC Student Ambassador had to be one of the most rewarding experiences of my college career. The Student Ambassadors are the best of the best, and not everyone who applies will be accepted. The honor of this position will speak for itself as you work together with other students and faculty not only for your school, but for the community as well. The connections you will make as a Student Ambassador are connections that will last a lifetime. You will gain a respect as an ambassador that will carry over into other areas of your life helping you to become a more well - rounded student and person. I would encourage anyone considering applying to do so. I am sure glad I did.
- Wayne Foley, former Ambassador

I am currently a Student Ambassador at Somerset Community College. This is my second year serving and I absolutely LOVE it! I have had so many opportunities to attend wonderful events, meet guest speakers, get to know the faculty, and make friendships that will last a lifetime! I'm sad I will be graduating this coming May, but I have great memories of being a Student Ambassador. I would highly recommend this great program. This program is a great way to strengthen your leadership skills along with your communication skills. If you love being apart of a team this is definitely a program to consider! I hope many of you apply to the Student Ambassador program this coming April! If you have any questions, need more information, or interested in the program please contact Melissa Winstead! She's a very sweet and knowledgable lady who is the Coordinator for the Student Ambassador program. Don't forget the deadline is April 15th!!!
