Just this week, I went to training to become a volunteer for Admissions, and I learned how to give a tour! I know this probably sounds nerdy, but I’m really excited!! I remember how fun my first tour here was, but also how nervous I was. Personally, I know I’m a pretty talkative person (my mom will laugh at that, saying it’s an understatement), and I’m usually pretty skilled at making situations less awkward, if I try. I really hope that students on my tour will see Augustana for how great it is, just like I do! I’m excited to be answering questions and to seem so knowledgeable to incoming students, because it makes me feel excited and older, I suppose. I’m excited to share little tidbits about the great experiences I’ve had so far as well (considering they ask for my opinion)! (: I just hope I can show at least one person (but hopefully tons) how fantastic Augie is, and maybe they’ll even walk away saying, “I am sure I want to go here now!”
It will just be so cool to be a potential influence to kids who are in the position I was in last year!
