Meet Our Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors work in the Admissions Office giving campus tours, assisting with recruiting, and helping LCCC students, prospective students, families and the community! Student Ambassadors are the face of LCCC and help to portray the College in a positive light to the community by being friendly, knowledgeable and helpful.

Student Ambassadors gain valuable work experience and are also members of the Student Leadership Institute, exposing them to professional development training and leadership experience that can set them up for future success! Ambassadors come from all walks of life, but all have one thing in common: the desire to make a difference in the lives of other LCCC students.

Ambassadors are here to help make your experience at LCCC a great one!

Hometown:  Cheyenne, WY
Program of Study:  Agriculture Business
Why you chose LCCC:

I chose LCCC for several reasons. LCCC has an incredible agriculture department, and it was the closest college to home. Along with that it was the most modern community college, yet still the most affordable. The small class sizes were also very appealing, and I was drawn to the fact that instructors had time to help their students one-on-one, inside the classroom and out. There were the most support systems, and LCCC was a great transition between high school and a university. Overall, it was simply the best fit, and I couldn’t picture myself attending a different institution!

Your favorite thing about LCCC:  My favorite thing about LCCC is the togetherness displayed all across our campus. Throughout LCCC there are always people there for one another, and there is a true sense of community that people continuously feel when they are at LCCC. No matter where we come from, and no matter where we go, one thing remains true: we’re all Golden Eagles, and that alone makes us special!
If you were a type of candy, what would you be?  According to my Buzzfeed results, a starburst (pink, obviously.)
If you went on a spontaneous trip, where would you go and why?  

I would go somewhere dog friendly, so I could bring my dog Beau along. I would take a spontaneous trip to Alaska to see some National Parks, but he would also be content with a spontaneous trip through the drive-thru!

Your favorite thing about LCCC:  My favorite thing about LCCC is that I have met a lot of people! I love that everyone is willing to help you no matter what. I love that there is a small amount of people in my program which has made it easier to get to know everyone.
If you were a type of candy, what would you be?  I would be a Snickers because I am not me when I am hungry.
If you went on a spontaneous trip, where would you go and why?  I would go to Paris and watch a ballet.
