Several students are working as student ambassadors this year at Susquehanna University. Among them are:
Emily Lepore, of Hereford, is an early childhood education major in the Class of 2018. A 2014 graduate of Upper Perkiomen High School, she is the daughter of Ronald and Kathy Lepore; and
Marquise Richards, of Reading, is a communications-digital multimedia-broadcasting major in the Class of 2018. A 2012 graduate of ReadingHigh School, he is the son of Nicole Richards and Giovanni Antonetti.
To become an ambassador, students must complete a written application and personal interview with the admissions staff. Once selected, students complete an intensive training program, followed by additional training sessions throughout their time on the job.
Training includes shadowing veteran tour guides, becoming familiar with the admissions process and frequently asked questions, learning to present important information during the tour and preparing to deal with challenging situations that may arise while giving a tour.
