Committee: Student Alumni Association
2nd Year Ambassador
Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I met some of the Ambassadors (current and past) at one of the Student Alumni Association Networking Dinners and they talked with me about all the planning and work that they did behind the scenes for Homecoming, the Pep Rallies, and other cool events. Even though I had not heard about AASAP before then, I knew that I wanted to join and take part in organizing and executing some of the university’s most significant traditions.
What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? I enjoy getting the chance to work with such dedicated and accomplished people who are all excited to coordinate a wide variety of events on campus. It is a great experience to see what goes on “behind the curtain” and all of the hard work that is put into the Wolfpack’s traditions throughout the year.
What is your favorite AASAP event? My favorite event would have to be the Homecoming parade - it's a great way to cap off the busiest week of the year for everyone in the Program and getting to walk in the parade was a unique experience that I will never forget. The fireworks from last year made it even more exciting!
What is your favorite AASAP memory? My favorite AASAP memory is probably our first "official" meeting during last year's retreat at Camp Hanes. I was already excited at having been chosen to join the Program, and hearing about all of the upcoming pep rallies and other events really fired me up for the semester.
What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? I recently completed my second co-operative education rotation this summer, working in electronics hardware testing and analysis at Schneider Electric in Knightdale, NC. The Co-op Program has been a fantastic way to get experience in a full-time environment while still maintaining a strong focus on my education.
