UNCW Student Ambassador Update: Convention is one week away!

February 09, 2017

Hi everyone,

The UNCW Student Ambassadors are only one week away from attending the CASE ASAP convention! As we prepare for sunny Gainesville, Florida, we have been working diligently on our presentations and lip sync dance. 

Going through the official convention preparation has reminded us how grateful we are for each and every one of you. Your generous support is the reason this experience is possible - thank you! 

This year, we will be presenting on Spring Retreat and Oozeball. Spring Retreat is held each February and brings current Ambassadors and our recently accepted new members together at Fort Caswell. At this retreat, our friendships grow stronger, we teach the new members the ropes of Ambassadors, and even participate in team building activities as well. Like previous years, our Oozeball presentation is always a hit, as we discovered the idea of Oozeball from CASE ASAP convention over 20 years ago. For this presentation, we explain all aspects of hosting a mud volleyball tournament, while raising money for our organization as well. 

For our lip sync dance, we are performing a number of songs, under the theme of "The Advance of Dance." We have been choreographing to songs like Grease, Rockin' Robin, Thriller, The Duggie, and more! We hope that through this Lip Sync we will be able to embody how pop culture dancing has changed over the past couple of decades. We took 2nd place overall at last year's convention and hope to win the gold this year!

Stay tuned for an update after convention and wish us luck and we hope we make you all proud...Go Seahawks!

With gratitude,

Heather Welch and Erin Valdini

Wow, we are so overwhelmed at the amount of support our project has received over the past month. We accomplished our goal of raising $2,000 and actually raised $2,284! All of this money will go towards getting our UNCW Student Ambassador group to convention in February!

We will continue to post updates on here as we prepare to leave for Convention in the following months, and share our experiences upon our return as well!

Again, thank you. This would not be possible without each and every one of you. We cannot express our gratitude enough :) 

Happy Holidays to you all!

-Heather and Erin

Currently, our Student Ambassadors are applying within our organization to be selected to go to Convention in Florida this year! It is so exciting to receive so many applications from our students who are so eager to make this university better for our peers.
