- Join the Conversation

COMING SOON —   Watch for the first in a series of quick interviews highlighting WCC Students!

Washtenaw Community College hosts a diverse population with varied and valuable life experiences. We want to use our roles as ambassadors to bring these voices together, both on this blog site and through student-organized gatherings on campus. Watch for developing ideas on Facebook, and give us your opinions regarding topics you’d like to discuss and events you’d like to develop. We’re still ‘reinventing’ what it means to be an ambassador, but one of the things we want to accomplish in the coming year is a strong sense of community on our campus. In addition to posting up-coming activities and reminding you about all the great services available here, we’re interested in using this site to discover how students feel about the political climate, the current job market, advancing technology, and the ever-widening global economy. Whether these conversations are in person or take place through social media, we ask that contributors remain civil and demonstrate a level of respect for the differing opinions of others. Finally, we’re looking for opportunities to just have fun and blow off steam. The Student Activities team leads the way on this front, and we’re hoping to collaborate with them to come up with a few new ideas that will bring people together. So, that’s all we’ve got for right now. Official introductions are on the way, but just in case you’re curious and want to put a name with the face, here’s a breakdown left to right in the picture above: Alyssa is our veteran Ambassador. She’s leaving the team in August to pursue medical studies at the University of Michigan. Alyssa is deeply introspective, confident, multi-talented, technology-resistant, and just a tad shy. Ask about her Pug, and she’ll warm up right away. Mimi (Me’ahni) brims with curiosity, is fascinated by cultural traditions, and insists on seeing the positive side of everything. She is completing her studies in elementary education and will transfer to Eastern next year. David is enrolled through Washtenaw Technical Middle College. He holds three jobs while attending college full time. He seems to continually evaluate and apply logic to the world around him. He has a warm smile and a deep concern for the well-being of others. Talk to him once, and you’ll agree he is wise far beyond his years. Loren is a born leader. Everyone on the team claims him as a best friend. He is clever, creative, and has a great sense of humor. Loren is studying business and will pursue his studies in marketing at U of M Dearborn next year. Brandon is currently developing a plan to combine his passion for the healthcare industry with his IT and business talents. Brandon is thoughtful and cautious. He’s an observer who expresses great reflection with a gentle voice. Brandon values family and loyalty above all else. We’re looking forward to sharing more information with you while collecting your thoughts and ideas through this site as well as our Facebook page. Until next time, thanks for logging on!!/WashtenawCommunityCollegeStudentAmbassadors
