Since first impressions count so much, especially when visiting a college campus, Tennessee Tech University admissions counselor Alexis Pope is literally an ambassador for TTU all year round. "Because of Alexis, the freshman SOAR sessions during the summer are organized, run smoothly and provide the best all-around experience for our incoming students," says Lauren Ragland. "He provides the best care for students (new and current), families and co-workers. He is always friendly and informative." Ambassador nomination forms are available from TTU's Human Resource Services or by visiting www.tntech.edu/hr .
