Whenever I’m on shift I strive to make sure everyone is having a good day at the front desk. Some of us, Student Ambassadors do have some downy days or just are tired. I noticed that so I decided to be the goofball of the SA's.
As a student ambassador at the University of Advancing Technology, I try to make every tour a memorable experience. To give perspective I gave my first tour in a suit as to make the tour the most memorable experience for both me and the people I gave the tour too.
The Watchers of the Wall are the Student Ambassadors who defend the front desk. I’m one of these said Watchers that perform these daily tasks. I am but a simple Knight with a monster in my sheath always prepared to joust. Why there are also other knights! Such as Sir John he is the Jester of the Wall. Then there is Sir Jordan a true man of merit with chivalry unrivaled. We also have Sir Hakim who is not afraid to show off his pride. Another Knight is Sir Andrew who can charm his way out of every situation. Ah yes how could we forget Lady Bailey she a greenhorn just like me, formed a rivalry for the coat of arms purple. Our Lady Stefani a Baron in her own right orders us and make sure we are well rewarded for our duties. As we serve the High Lord Sir Robert of the high table, he gives us the honor to serve in his name. We man the cleverly named Wall, the “Donut” and it resembles just that, A Donut.
One of my favorite parts of being a Student Ambassador is getting the opportunity to give tours of the UAT campus. Sharing my passion about this school with curious people that are just as excited about technology as I am can be a lot of fun. There’s a lot of cool areas and interesting technologies on campus, so I’m going to share with you my top 3 parts of a UAT campus tour.
3. THE MAKER LAB
Summer is winding down and the weather outside is getting cooler. UAT, however is warming up for the Start of the Fall Semester. Starting September 4th, Classes will be starting up again and students will in full swing, getting the knowledge needed to pursue their goals. There are some interesting changes that are happening in the new semester. Lets take a look, shall we?
The University of Advancing Technology (UAT) is a pretty small campus with only two buildings: the main campus building and the dormitory. I discovered a whole new world of UAT when I moved into Founder's Hall, a melting pot of geek culture, where studious hackers, (really) excited robotics students, digital artists and designers gather to talk about the future of technology, crush energy drinks, tackle homework, shoot some pool, game all night, hash out problems and form lasting friendships.
