Admission Ambassadors

Our ambassadors offer invaluable support to the Office of Admission. From helping greet visitors at the front desk of Cutler Hall to providing campus tours to supporting us with campus events, our ambassadors are often the first face that you'll encounter when arriving at CC.

Hearing from current students is the best way to learn about life on the Block Plan. We encourage you to email them with your questions!
