Hi! I’m Julia Campbell and I’m a senior in the Digital Art and Animation program, with an Entertainment Design concentration. I’m also one of the Cogswell ambassadors.
As an ambassador, I get to talk to prospective students and their families and give tours as well as help out at school events. Occasionally the ambassadors get to go along with Admissions staff to talk at schools. We also do a lot of data entry and packet making – all necessary to keep the school and interested prospies (prospectives) up to date.
I applied for the position because I love the school and feel there’s a lot of potential here. My goal is to try to help find students who will strengthen Cogswell as well as benefit from it. I enjoy meeting new people and talking about the college experience with them, and feel I have a different perspective since I already have a degree from a liberal arts college.
My favorite part is probably meeting the new prospies and getting to hear what they’re interested in – and seeing the portfolios they bring in! – then being able to tell them that their goals are viable and within reach with a college like Cogswell.
I found Cogswell when I was looking through the education section of the forums on ConceptArt.org. I’d been looking for a digital art school for a couple of months but hadn’t seen Cogswell’s name come up before. I found the school website and when I saw that it was just a 15 minute drive south of me I went down the very next day to take a look. Once I had the tour and saw some of the work on the walls I knew it was where I wanted to be.
