"Welcome to Wal-Mart," says the older gentleman standing at the doorway. I am almost twenty-one years old, but I have to stop myself from asking for a sticker.
Okay, I have a confession to make. After I am retired, I want to be a Wal-Mart greeter. My reasoning? Sometimes, the most enjoyable part of my shopping experience is seeing the smiling face at the door. Granted, I am a young woman with limited life experience, but I have found it to be true every time that my encounters with strangers have always been memorable.
Case in point, one day I was shopping for a Care Bear in K-Mart. A female employee was helping me dig through every stuffed animal bin for Share Bear (not an easy bear to track down) and the subject of marriage came up. How? I do not know, but the woman was recently engaged. In the course of forty-five minutes, I learned the entire background of this lady. I left the store (bear-less) wondering how I found out everything except this woman's name. To this day, I have never seen her again, but I am glad that she could talk about the exciting events in her life.
Needless to say, I LOVE getting to know people. Thanks to Judson College, I can do just that while helping promote my school.
As a Judson College ambassador, I have the responsibility of answering the question, "So what? Why Judson College?" every time a student visits campus. My job is to share the history of Judson College, where it's going now, and how that young woman's future can be a part of the Judson legacy. I love to share what I know about my college to prospective students and their families, because Judson has stood the test of time. Since its genesis in 1838, Judson has strove to educate generations of young women to be successful in their careers, home lives, churches, and communities.
If you're a young woman looking for a college, I highly suggest you check out Judson College. The best opportunity for you to do so is Saturday, February 19, 2011 during Scholarship Day. Come fill out an application, take a scholarship test, meet current faculty and students, and take a tour of our beautiful campus. Who knows? I might be your ambassador.
