Admission Ambassadors

Our Ambassadors range in class year and interests and offer invaluable support to the Office of Admission. From helping greet visitors at the front desk of Cutler Hall to providing campus tours to helping with various events at Open Houses, Ambassadors are often the first face that visitors encounter when they arrive at CC. We encourage you to ask them questions about life as a student on the Block Plan!
