My First Year as a Student Ambassador

February 12, 2016

by Emma Corcoran

This year was my first year as a Student Ambassador here at Purchase! After I was first hired to become an Ambassador I was really excited, but the more I thought about it, the more nervous I got. How could I possibly remember all that information about the college? What if I trip and fall while walking backwards on a tour? My first few weeks of tours went a lot better than I imagined them, though. I had other Ambassadors and my awesome boss encouraging me.

Being an Ambassador showed me a small part of Purchase that often goes unnoticed. During tours and campus events I’ve met so many kinds of people I never would have otherwise. It’s a great feeling being able to help others find the college that suits them best. I love Purchase, so I love telling other students about what we have to offer.

Being a Student Ambassador and representing Purchase is very different than many of the other employment opportunities on campus, and I like to think it’s more rewarding too. 
