Athens, OH 8 October 2018 –
On October 3rd, the Engineering Ambassadors hosted “Meet the Ambassadors” in the Academic and Research Center. Food and drinks were provided to students in exchange for feedback on the Russ College. The ambassadors were interested in student input about the college facilities, classes, and amenities.
The event was a huge success! There was a total of 196 suggestions. The External Relations committee divided up the feedback into multiple categories including room layouts, career development, and major-specific topics. Each category was analyzed for common themes and discussed for feasibility.
Now that the information has been organized, the External Relations committee is meeting with college faculty and the Dean to relay student input to them. One goal of the ambassadors is to bridge the needs of students with the attention of administrators.
A few key topics we are focusing on include study room availability with a reservation system, technical issues in the computer labs, and facility maintenance requests. Once a decision is made for plausible changes, the ambassadors will follow up during their implementation. Ultimately, the external relations committee is eager to continue Meet the Ambassadors in the future and continue to learn of student concerns within the college.
