Committee: Director of Homecoming

2nd Year Ambassador

Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? After transferring to State, I wanted to get involved on campus. The other clubs/ organizations I looked into didn't quite fit my personality, but I knew the first night of interviews that I was meant to be in AASAP.  

What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? Most definitely the impact that I have on NC State's campus and the influence I have over future generations of graduates. We keep the traditions, which are the very life a breath of our campus, alive year after year.

What is your favorite AASAP event? Homecoming week... and yes I know its not one individual event, but the week as a whole serves as a reminder for why we do what we do. We work hard all year to celebrate this week with past, present and potentially future generations of Wolfpack-ers. It's moving to see current students serving alongside faculty/ staff and alumni throughout the week – no matter how drastic our differences, we still come together for an entire week to celebrate our similarities.

What is your favorite AASAP memory? AASAP retreat is alway my favorite time we spend together. Whenever we work together to accomplish the obstacles – like the giant wall we all crossed – it reminds me that I am part of the best organization on campus with the best people imaginable.

What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? Delight Ministries

1st Year Ambassador

Why did you decide to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador? I decided to apply to be an Alumni Ambassador because I knew that I wanted to become more involved with the NC State community during my time in college. I saw AASAP as a great way to do so and to meet others who are as passionate about our great university as I am!

What excites you most about being an Alumni Ambassador? One of the most exciting things for me about being an Alumni Ambassador is being able to see firsthand how much of an impact we are able to have on students, alumni and the university. From t-shirt distributions, to ring week, to homecoming, to pep rallies and more, we are able to see the smiles on the faces of the students as they receive their shirts, order their class ring, watch the parade and cheer on the Wolfpack!

What event are you looking forward to most as an ambassador? I am definitely excited for the whole year but I am most excited for Homecoming Week and all of the events that it entails. It is going to be a great celebration welcoming the Wolfpack back to campus and celebrating the best university in the world!  

What is something you are involved in outside of the Alumni Ambassadors? Outside of AASAP, I serve as a leader for CRU which is the largest college ministry on campus.
