New Mexico State University students selected as student ambassadors

Fifteen New Mexico State University students have been selected as new student ambassadors.


ambassadors assist the Office of Admissions with recruiting. They participate in visitors' days, attend university recruitment events around the state and give group and individual tours of the campus. The ambassadors are trained on the history of the university, financial aid information and the degree programs available at New Mexico State.

Kathleen Sluyter of Las Cruces is a junior majoring in community health education. Daughter of Martha Apuan of Las Cruces and William Sluyter of Roswell, she is a member of the Chi Omega Sorority on campus. She was attracted to the student ambassador program because of the opportunity to become "more directly involved on campus."

James Harrison of Las Cruces is a senior majoring in marketing. Son of Ken and Melady Harrison of Las Cruces, he is a crimson scholar and has interests in astronomy and star gazing. Harrison is interested in teaching new students "as much as possible about campus to make their adjustment period shorter and easier."

Other students selected as student ambassadors are Clare Bowen-O'Connor of Trinidad and Tobago in the Caribbean; Ernest Espinoza of Mora; Ashley Gallegos of Belen; Lindsay Gilbert of Clovis; Bonnie Gore of Tijeras; Jennelle Getting, Christine Cobos and Maggie Casmus of El Paso; Amara Nance and Tiffany West of Moriarty; and Avril Julander, Suzanne Fraser and Daniel Archuleta of Albuquerque.
