Presidential Student Ambassadors Begin Year of Service


Twenty-one students are serving as Presidential Student Ambassadors for the 2017-18 academic year at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

Selected for their demonstration of leadership, involvement, academic achievement and campus pride, the student ambassadors promote Penn College to prospective and current students and their families, guests, alumni, business partners and friends of the college.

“The Presidential Student Ambassadors are such a huge part of the Admissions team,” said Claire Z. Biggs, coordinator of admissions events and services. “They make such a great first impression on our prospective students; it’s hard to imagine not having them around! The ambassadors are already hard at work, and we’re so excited to see what’s in store for this great group of students this year!”
