June (for July intake) and July (for August intake) saw an influx of foreign students wishing to attend summer school at the university, myself and Ynyr, another ambassador attended the Airport to greet the new students and get them safely onto transport to Glyndwr, these were 4 long days having flights arrive at different times during the 2 Saturdays and 2 Sundays that we attended, this I loved doing, it was very nice to meet so many foreign students, some of which had never been away from home before, this must of been very daunting for them, hopefully Ynyr and myself helped to put there minds at ease during this brief transmission. I will definitely be putting my name forward for this work next year.
Thursday 10 March 2016 I attended Newcastle Under Lyme College as a student ambassador on behalf of the university, I was accompanied by Professor Alison McMillan from the Engineering department, an interesting day and busy at times, hopefully have been able to convince a few to choose Glyndwr University as their next port of call in further education. The first 2 images are of Alison giving her speech to a group of 40 college kids, the second 2 are of our stand in the college.
Today was my first appointment as a student ambassador for Glyndwr as the University held an open day, kitted out in my yellow hoodie, I was given the task of showing prospective students and their parents around a ‘Media Tour’, this consisted of leaving from the sports hall at set times, along the tour I showed them various locations on campus but my main aim was to get them to see the CCI Building, this building is where the Media students will spend almost all of their time whilst studying.
Although we have not had any feedback up-to press, I got the sense that they were impressed with what we had to offer here at Glyndwr.
