University Ambassadors


Campus Tours 
Tours are one of the most visible responsibilities of a POLY REP. As a committee, Campus Tours is in charge of organizing which POLY REP will give each tour. Tour guides are required for daily general tours, as well as tours for special groups. All POLY REPS are expected to sign-up and give a minimum of one tour a month. The committee evaluates each tour guide yearly. Tours is also responsible for executing tour training for all new members and fact checking and updating current campus knowledge.

If you could travel anywhere in the world, where would it be and why? 
I’m torn, I’ve always felt pulled to to visit Ireland and I would love to revisit Salzburg in Austria, but then... Disneyland. They say it’s the happiest place on earth and I believe it.

Before traveling to another country I want to travel to every state in the United States on a cross-country road trip! I think we have so much to learn about our own country and our own people, and would love to see the great wonders within our own soil. After that, I would board a plane to Greece! That country fascinates me with its history, culture, and beauty.
