College of Education ambassadors are leaders and serve as professional liaisons for the college with regards to recruitment, campus events and service.
With information sessions this week and the application deadline right around the corner, we want to take the opportunity to highlight this program by spotlighting one of its students. We talked to Julianne Britt, ’16, in Middle Grades Science Education.
I chose to become a CED ambassador so I could become more involved with the college itself. I truly value the impact the CED has made on my future, and I wanted to be able to contribute something of myself to it. As soon as I heard about the program I immediately applied and I have enjoyed it ever since!
Being a CED ambassador has shown me how to communicate with people in any situation. As a teacher, I will be communicating with students, parents, and administrators on a daily basis and for various reasons; however, through the ambassador program I have attended workshops and engaged in real-time practice of the skills necessary to do this well. I am confident that I will be a much more polished and professional teacher due to my experiences as an ambassador.
My advice to anyone thinking of applying to be a CED ambassador would be to do it without hesitation! Being more involved in the college will only be a positive experience for you. The friendships, knowledge and experiences I have from this program will forever be something I look back fondly on from my time at NC State.
