We identified four areas of focus where you, as ambassadors of the college, can participate and make your contribution from the comforts of your home city. These focus areas are led by: 1 – Admissions: Herman Jew, President 2 - Career Services: Gloria Lim, VP 3 – Advancement: James and Maria Marling, VP 4 - Campus Events: Torrey Grimes, Bel Feltner, and Michele Mank, VP’s This fourth focus, (divided into two areas: Recruitment and Retention and New Student Orientation in August) is held on the Ringling campus. This will create opportunities for our local and nearby ambassadors to participate.
During Accepted Students Day, held recently on April 9th, this new structure and message was shared with the Class of 2020. Over 600 parents and students participated to see their new home away from home for the next four years. There were 42 parents who signed up to be PA Ambassador Leaders in their respective cities. Now with this new organization in place, I would like to extend an invitation and share this message with all of our parent community to participate and inquire about the area of focus you are passionate about. We are excited about the new mission statement and its contagious effect. A special thank you to all the parents and parent leaders who volunteered their time at the National Portfolio Days and Ringling’s Preview Day. These events were a tremendous success. As you are ambassadors of Ringling College of Art and Design, much gratitude is shared with you as you continue to spread the excitement of your student’s education in coffee circles, break rooms, and social events where you reside and work. Celebrate the creative that comes with our Ringling College family. Congrats to parents and families of graduating seniors. Have a wonderful summer! www.ringling.edu
