As an international ambassador, it is our responsibility to build and reinforce the bridges between high school and college. Last week was my first time as I had the opportunity to visit three different high schools, namely, Snow College, Selnate International School, and Wasatch Academy. These high schools were located just about two hours drive from Logan (trust me, the drive was beautiful - see picture for yourself). These visits consist of giving free USU stuff, building better relationships with professionals and teachers, and sitting in a student panel. The goal of these visits was to share our experience as Aggies (or Utah State University students) and excite them for what it's like to be at USU. As for me, when interacting with the high school students, I spoke from the heart. I can vividly recall about 4 years ago, I was in their exact same position, same state of mind, with the same questions; what to do, how to do it, and where to go next?
To answer these questions, we present our best knowledge in areas of academics, sports, residence life, outdoor recreations, clubs and organizations etc etc.... Our influence on these students can impact them for the rest of their lives. It's a win-win situation for all of us and we definitely look forward to future high school visits and welcoming new Aggies to USU.
