Admission Ambassador Executive Board
Admission Ambassadors is a club of dedicated Providence College students who work closely with the Office of Admission by sharing their PC story with prospective students and families. Ambassadors assist the Office by presenting during Admission Information Sessions, hosting prospective students during the Day in Friartown shadow program, and connecting with students and guests at larger programs such as Fall Open House, Early Admitted Students Day, and Admitted Students Day. High school students are encouraged to reach out to members of the Admission Ambassador Executive Board with questions about extracurricular activities, clubs and organizations, academic majors and minors, and the city of Providence.

Some advice that I would give to those transitioning to Providence College would be to get involved! The involvement at PC has truly made this campus a second home to me. You will meet some of your best friends through your involvement and create some of the best memories of your college experience. Getting involved really brings out the best in the Friar Family, and the community that is embedded here will be open for you and there for you to help with the transition into Friartown and make you feel at home!

Hi! My name is Julia McCoy and I am a senior English and Political Science double major. My advice for those who are coming to Providence College is that you should always keep your door open when you’re in your room! My freshman year, I kept my door open to encourage my floormates to stop in and introduce themselves. It was one of the best ways to meet people that lived nearby! As far as academic advice goes, I urge you to ask as many questions as you need to. No matter who it is – professors, peers, advisors, even admission counselors – are happy to help you figure out your path in Friartown! When I was a freshman, I was curious to explore a variety of different classes, and asked question of my advisors about the double major experience. The biggest thing I took from that experience is that everyone is here to help on campus and there are no student questions when planning your future!

Hi! My name is Kristen Moran and I am a senior Finance major. My biggest advice for incoming students is to take advantage of everything PC’s campus has to offer. With so many clubs and activities going on each day, there is something for everyone! I also would recommend students to seek out opportunities through their major. Through the School of Business, I had the opportunity to attend a mock Superday bootcamp here on campus and visit The New York Stock Exchange and Goldman Sachs in NYC to connect with PC alumni. I also would recommend taking advantage of our small class sizes and getting to know your professors outside of class time. The transition to college may be daunting, but when you enter PC as a freshman you also enter the Friar Family which is always here for you! The best way to make new friends is by inviting classmates to grab dinner, go to a fitness class, or by simply striking up a conversation!

Academics: Mathematics/Secondary Education major, Spanish minor
Involvement: Student Congress, Senior Ring Weekend (SRW) Core, Admissions Ambassador, Senior Admissions Fellow, Campus Ministry, Education Club, Intramural Sports
Hi! My name is Kate Zenobio and I am a senior, Math Secondary Education major Spanish minor from Long Island, NY. Providence College has been my idea of college and life after high school for as long as I remember, having visited my aunt here at the age of 5. Now here, the best advice that I can give to an incoming student is to be open to all kinds of relationships. Start to form genuine connections with your professors by going to their office hours; they will clarify any question you might have about the course content, but they really do want to see you succeed inside and outside of the classroom, so go just to have a casual conversation! Start to form genuine friendships with those in your classes or the clubs and organizations that you are a part of! People with similar interests tend to gravitate toward each other and share valuable experiences. And again, if you stay open to all kinds of possibilities, you never know, you may even meet your best friend while brushing your teeth in your residence hall bathroom!
