My Last Open House As a Rosemont Ambassador
Last Saturday, I participated in my final open house as a Student Ambassador of Rosemont. Realizing this made me extremely sad! But the event, which was for high school juniors, went really well, so at least I’m glad to have that as my last memory.
I’ve been giving tours, speaking on panels, and helping at open houses for three years. It’s been one of my favorite activities! I love meeting prospective students, sharing the great experiences I’ve had, and showing them (YOU!) all the opportunities they (YOU!) can have.
At our event on Saturday, we got to show off our freshly renovated Rotwitt Theater, which looks amazing. I’m jealous that next year’s class, and all those who come after, will get to enjoy it for four full years. But someone once told me that each graduating class should feel like they are missing out on something when they leave. Rosemont has definitely inspired that feeling in me over the past year.
Recently, my favorite part of giving tours has been pointing out all of the new additions and renovations to campus: the honors house, the turf and softball fields, the cafeteria and café, the student activities center, now the theater, and soon Mayfield Hall. Showing off our school has brought me much joy and excitement for Rosemont’s future.
At the open house, I also had the fortune to speak with some prospective English and Communication majors. I love talking about our dual-degree programs and now, our new double master’s program (publishing and creative writing). I met some students interested in internships, too. It was really exciting.
Even though I’m sad to graduate in May, just as I was sad to work my last open house, being a Student Ambassador has been an indescribable experience.
