Rachel Andrade, here! I am a recent graduate of Pace University NYC and a former OrcaTV student ambassador. During my time at Pace University I majored in Arts and Entertainment Management and minored in Special Events Marketing. In effort to foster a community on a big city campus, I served as an executive board member of the Programming and Campus Entertainment Board (P.A.C.E. Board) for two years; Marketing Director ‘16-’17, President ‘17-’18. As a student leader, I recognized the importance of student engagement and recognition. Understanding these two factors was a vital part of my role as a student ambassador.

As graduation approaches and the final chapter of my time at George Mason University closes, I can reflect back on my time as a student ambassador for OrcaTV and what a wonderful learning experience it has been. I’ve always been a shy person and so reaching out to so many student organizations was a daunting task. Being a student ambassador, being able to find my professional voice, and feeling my confidence grow has been life-changing. I have learned not only learned valuable skills, but I have also been a part of helping Mason grow into an active community rich with student organizations and lively, engaging events.

The fall 2017 semester is over, and what an incredible three months it has been! When I started out as a student ambassador at George Mason University, I had never reached out to student organizations on campus despite being an active participant.
