Here is what current Student Ambassadors have to say about their experience:

Becoming a Student Ambassador for SCC has been a great honor for me. Representing this school while meeting many new friends, future students, and dignitaries has been so rewarding. It is a fun and exciting program that I have been blessed to have been a part of. My experiences with this prestigious program will be in my fondest memories.

- Makayla Dalton, Former Student Ambassador

I am currently a Student Ambassador for Somerset Community College and I would not trade it for anything. This program not only helps you develop better leadership and communication skills, but you meet a lot of wonderful people. Also, in the program you make several new friendships that will last a lifetime. With this program I was able to not only help out the college, but also help out my community. I highly recommend this program to any individual looking to gain better skills and be an asset to this college and community. It is an enjoyable program to be apart of and I cannot wait to be apart of the Student Ambassador program again next year!

- Cayley Blevins, Current Student Ambassador

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

The SCC Student Ambassador program is one the best opportunities I have ever had the privilege of participating in. Not only do I get to work with phenomenal peers and fellow students, but I get to participate within the community meeting and working with equally phenomenal leaders. I have also learned from and worked with Somerset Community College staff I would otherwise have never met. The Ambassador Program has opened my mind to new experiences and opened doors of new opportunity in my life.

- Alicia Cook, Current Ambassador

I absolutely loved being a Student Ambassador at Somerset Community College! 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!!!
