The College of Food, Agricultural, and Environmental Sciences (CFAES) recently announced their new class of Student Ambassadors for the 2014-2015 academic year, which includes two students enrolled in AEDE’s Agribusiness and Applied Economics undergraduate degree program. The students, Summer McCracken and Joshua Lees, will represent the college in a variety of ways, including meeting with and giving tours to prospective students and serving as liaisons to the Ohio State student body to help increase awareness of CFAES.
“The CFAES Student Ambassador team drew me in because of the level of responsibility and the honor to represent the College,” McCracken notes in regards to her decision to compete for the program. “CFAES has allowed me to grow as a person and I want to give back to the College. CFAES is doing great things for its students and deserves to be recognized. I am excited to talk to prospective students about our College and share my personal story about why I chose to study here.” McCracken is a first-year student from Anna, OH
Lees, an second-year transfer student from Kansas State University who is from Cincinnati, OH, reflects on how his own experience transferring to Ohio State helped him decide to compete for the CFAES Student Ambassadors program: “The main reason that I wanted to become a CFAES Student Ambassador was because I wanted to help high school seniors and transfer students be successful here at Ohio State. I want to promote the unrivaled sense of family that is so prevalent throughout the College, and I hope to make each and every prospective student feel welcomed and informed about their options here at Ohio State.”
The students were chosen by faculty and staff in the College and had to compete via an application and interview process for ten available seats. They join a group of 22 students who were chosen for their program in previous competitive processes. To learn more about the CFAES Student Ambassadors program, click here.
