Fall semester is coming to a close and our neighborhood ambassadors will soon be out enjoying their winter break. Before they leave to deck the halls with boughs of holly, our ambassadors wish to share with you reflections on their experiences this semester in the program:
|Hannah and her pup|
"Neighborhood Ambassadors has been a great way for me to get out in my neighborhood and meet interesting people I wouldn't have had the opportunity to meet."
|Nick raking at Sunday Sweepers|
"I enjoyed the sociable aspects of the job. Getting out and talking to the neighborhood was a valuable experience. It helped build confident public speaking and strong social relations."
|Taylor removing graffiti|
"My overall experience has been positive. I am glad to hear so many neighbors find that our program matters and is effective in making a difference. Thanks for the positive vibes."
|Elissa & Mike at our household winterization event|
"I enjoyed getting to know the numbers of our community that do not ordinarily meet the students that come and go so quickly. They are the glue that holds our community together!"
"I've really enjoyed my semester with my fellow ambassadors, my favorite event was the summer Block Party."
|Courtney removing graffiti|
"Neighborhood ambassadors has been a fabulous program to be involved in. There were so many things going on in this community that I was unaware of before working with the organization. I never knew about MUD, Off-Campus Renter Center, or all the other resources available here. I've loved learning more and being a part of this outreach."
We thank you for a wonderful semester! On behalf of all of us we would like to wish you happy holidays and a happy New Year!
