High school students are faced with a challenge as they begin their college search—what school is best for them? Often their decision-making process entails a campus visit.
At William Woods University, a group called University Ambassadors provides campus tours and aids prospective students by giving them insight into what college life is really like.
Twenty-two students recently were named University Ambassadors for the 2014-15 academic year.
In addition to campus tours, they assist with campus event days (such as Woods 101, Discovery Days and the Equestrian Academic Showcase) and host prospective students. They also attend bimonthly meetings and assist the admissions office with general recruitment.
