Testimonials

Here's what our ambassadors are saying:


“What a wonderful use of great resources; I am thrilled to be a part of it (AAAP). I would seriously like to stay involved with my university, and this is a good way to do it. You just need to find the right things to ask alumni to do, and I think this ambassador program is spot on.”

- Bruce Quayle, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania

 

“If (Oakland) did not have an ambassador program, there is little chance any kids out here in Washington state would ever hear about OU. Our ambassador program is a chance for more areas to find out about our hidden treasure all the way out in Michigan.”

- Cass Fenstermacher, Port Orchard, Washington

 

“Becoming an ambassador was something I knew I wanted to do as soon as I heard about the program. And my first meeting with students was a very rewarding experience. I enjoyed sharing my story with them, and talking to them about what they can accomplish if they set their minds to it.”

- Jonathan Crawford, Detroit, MI

 

The program is awesome! Keep up the publicity to out-of-state students.”

- Nancy Davis, Dayton, Ohio

 

“This first college fair I attended was great! The AAAP coordinator has been very supportive. I enjoyed representing Oakland at this college fair (Eugene, OR) and I am willing to participate in future fairs. ”

- Ed Johnson, Eugene, Oregon

 

“The quality of communication has been nice for me, since I don’t live close to campus.”

- Lynne Lombard, Traverse City, Michigan

- Tom Schramski, Troy, Michigan

- Chris Lackowski, Romeo, Michigan

 

“What a great program for out-of-state alumni to stay connected on a regular basis. It’s enjoyable to spark an interest and see eyes light up when connecting with (students) about OU, something I’m passionate about.”
