More than 35 Jamestown Community College student ambassadors will join members of the college's faculty, staff and administration in welcoming visitors to the fall open house on the Jamestown Campus from 2 to 4:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 18.
"We're fortunate to have an energetic group of students serving as ambassadors this year," said Jade Barber, associate director of student recruitment. "They are passionate about encouraging prospective students to explore the many opportunities available at JCC."
In addition to assisting with open houses, the ambassadors guide group and individual campus tours, participate in student panel discussions, accompany JCC representatives to area high schools and college fairs, contribute to blogs on JCC's website, and engage in community service activities.
