"Serving as a Student Ambassador is one of the most engaging and fulfilling experiences of my life. When I started the program the college was nothing more than a place of learning, but through working as a Student Ambassador the college became a buzzing network of friends, coworkers and connections. Not only does this program offer you priceless experiences, it also helps you grow and harness your interpersonal skills and self-confidence. Without a doubt this program is sure to be something I will cherish for the rest of my life."
"The Student Ambassador Program has been monumental in enhancing the student experience for me at Somerset Community College. Being a part of the program has opened up opportunities and interactions that I otherwise would not have had. As a Student Ambassador I have been able to connect with my fellow students, staff, and my community in a more personal way that has made me feel that I'm a part of something bigger. I am truly honored to serve our campus and community in this way."
"During my time as a Student Ambassador at SCC, I was blessed to meet a lot of great people. The experience enriched me in many ways. I am grateful for how the Student Ambassador program enhanced my soft skills, leadership, and public speaking abilities. At the end of my time in the program, I actually gave a speech on the Student Ambassador program during an SCC Open House! While the SCC Student Ambassador scholarship was a huge benefit to me, I am forever blessed by the relationships I made and all I learned during the two years I served."
