AU Senior Becomes First Student Ambassador for Colleges of Distinction

AU senior, Lindsey Hrinowich, is soaring high after becoming the first author for the Colleges of Distinction student ambassador program. Being a student ambassador allows Hrinowich to share real-life advice and experiences with prospective college students. “We wanted to have real student voices representing our member institutions,” said Tyson Schritter, Chief Operating Officer. “Each college experience is unique to each individual student, and this is a great way to illustrate how different students are taking advantage of their time.”

In her article, Hrinowich discusses the importance of becoming a leader on your college campus. She definitely leads by example as she is an associate with Fifth Street Communications, the manager of the call team in the Office of Admissions, and the secretary for her PRSSA chapter. Not to mention that she has also held leadership positions in her social club, Camarada. She majors in public relations and holds a minor in marketing.

Read an excerpt from Hrinowich’s article below: 

“Once you’ve landed a leadership opportunity, don’t waste it. Become the kind of person who seeks out new projects. For example, my job in the admissions office requires me and my call team to work at night. Most of the office doesn’t know who the call team is or the hard work they do every night. To solve that misconception, I began sending a monthly newsletter to inform my coworkers of their accomplishments and goals for the coming month. No one asked me to do this, but I saw a need. That, in short, is the job of a leader. Seek out a need, and do whatever is necessary to fulfill it. And this responsibility isn’t just applicable to the position you hold; think beyond that.”

Hrinowich goes on to describe a leadership role as a “gift.” She emphasizes the importance of humility and kindness being key characteristics of a good leader. Keep soaring Lindsey!
