College of Education chooses ambassadors for Fall 2008

The College of Education at New Mexico State University has announced its college ambassadors for the 2008 fall semester.

Eleven education students will serve as ambassadors for the college and the university and will help in various events and recruiting. They were chosen because of their level of enthusiasm and their desire to be involved with the college.

"The ambassadors are very important because they help contact incoming and continuing students," said Elizabeth Dominguez, senior admissions advisor. "They help with university events and have even gone to classes and given presentations."

Brandi Urieta, a junior majoring in secondary education from Las Cruces, N.M., recently became a college ambassador as a way to interact with other education students and faculty members.

"I thought it was a good opportunity to network with people in the same field and to also show faculty and those in charge what we are experiencing here at NMSU," said Urieta.

Dominguez said being an ambassador is beneficial to students because it gives them to opportunity to do community service and to gain experience by interacting with children, students and parents. The ambassadors are given a $100 stipend for books.
