Twenty-one students are serving as Presidential Student Ambassadors for the 2017-18 academic year at Pennsylvania College of Technology.

“The Presidential Student Ambassadors are such a huge part of the Admissions team,” said Claire Z. Biggs, coordinator of admissions events and services. “They make such a great first impression on our prospective students; it’s hard to imagine not having them around!
