“I decided to become an Honors Ambassador my sophomore year at Baruch. I wanted to join this program because I know how overwhelming the college selection process is, especially when studying an unpopular major. Before applying to colleges, I knew little about Macaulay or the CUNY system. I want to help other prospective students understand the advantages and resources that Macaulay has. It is important for students to weigh the pros and cons that come with attending any college. As an HPA, I hope to help prospective students make the best decision for their future.” – Kat
“I have always wanted to represent my college and becoming an HPA was the perfect opportunity. Being a honors student, allowed me to push myself and provided me with endless opportunities. I received close guidance through my professors and advisors that helped me smoothly transition into college. The supportive environment that welcomed me was part of the several benefits of being in the honors community. I hope to give back by sharing what Baruch and the Honors Program has to offer. It is an honor to become an ambassador and I look forward to guiding prospective students on their journey to college.” – Coco
“I joined the Honors Ambassador Program during my sophomore year because I wanted to give back to the Baruch community, by providing prospective and current Baruch students the positive experiences I’ve had in my first two years of Baruch. Baruch has been and amazing and wonderful stepping stone to creating a strong foundation for my life/career and I am delighted that I get to share my knowledge and my own experiences. I also want to be as helpful as I can and be able to provide as much information as possible to prospective students and their parents about everything Baruch has to offer. Baruch is a fabulous college, and I have and still am enjoying the wonderful experiences that Baruch has to offer, and I can’t wait to share that with other incoming students!.” – Manvi
“When I was in high school, I put a great deal of energy and effort into finding the perfect college for me. Now that I am a sophomore, I am certain that Macaulay at Baruch was the right fit. I became an Honors Program Ambassador in order to advise younger students in the way that I sought out help during the college application process. An important component of my decision-making was ensuring that the school I chose had values that closely aligned with my own. I admire how Baruch is truly an engine of social mobility, offering a high-quality education at a low cost. While most universities primarily focus on making money, Baruch supports its students to ensure they obtain valuable life skills and connections that will help advance them in their careers as well as their personal lives. I could not speak of my college experience more highly, and I hope to encourage high school students to consider the same path that I chose.” – Paisley
“When I was applying to colleges, I went a little overboard creating multiple spreadsheets in an effort to find out which college was the right choice for me. Now that I’m at Baruch, I can safely say that I made the right choice and that the Honors Program Ambassadors played a key role. Choosing a college is more than purely academics, it also involves choosing an environment that will bring out the best in you. My brief glimpse into Baruch’s collegiate life was largely informed by ambassadors who have then gone on to become friends and mentors after I attended. They were representative of the great community we have here at Baruch and make the transition to a very large city feel cozy. I became an Honors Ambassador to give back to the community and I hope I will be able create moments of clarity for prospective students the same way that those before me have.” – Nikki
“As an honors student starting my sophomore year, I reflected upon my first year with much appreciation for the many opportunities and support I received. I was inspired to join the Baruch Honors Ambassadors program because of the level of comfort I felt after speaking to upperclassmen at info sessions and orientation last year and the support that followed afterwards. I also wanted to spread word about the way the Baruch Honors program pushes students to do well, strive for more challenges, and shoot far in coursework, extracurricular activities, and more. I was drawn to working closely with other students who were empowered and looking to further the vibrant culture that keeps us all connected. As my journey continues, I will cherish every new experience that comes my way, because it will have me looking forward to sharing them with prospective students who wish to do the same.” – Chaamy.
