I am an Engineering Ambassador at the University of Florida. One of the events we, as Engineering Ambassadors, host is called Gator Engineering Experience Day (GEE Day). Each year, prospective Gator Engineering students are invited to come together at GEE Day and discuss a wide range of topics about being an engineering student at the University of Florida, from academics to leadership to involvement. Our goal is to create an environment where prospective students can gain valuable insight into the University of Florida Herbert Wertheim College of Engineering and what it means to be a Gator Engineer. The day will consist of a brief talk from the engineering dean of student affairs, engineering specific panels about academics, research and involvement and a campus tour among other things.
The University of Florida class of 2022 was recently admitted and I wanted to see if you would be willing to let newly admitted Gators at your high school know about the opportunity they have to attend GEE Day. There is no cost to sign up and registration can be found at http://www.uf-ea.org/index.php/gee-day/. Students can bring only one guest with them that will be able to go through the entire day with the student.
The event will take place on Tuesday, March 20th in the Reitz Grand Ballroom in the J. Wayne Reitz Union. Check in will begin at 8:00am and the event will run from 10:00am to 4:00pm. I would greatly appreciate it if you would let all the newly admitted UF students that are interested in engineering know about this opportunity.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact the engineering ambassadors at email@example.com. My information is provided below for your convenience.
Thank you for the help,

Here at the Jacksonville Zoo and Gardens, we’re always looking for great talent to add to our current team. Therefore, we are excited to announce that we are currently looking for teens to join the award-winning W.I.L.D. Program!
As a W.I.L.D Steward, the teens will develop their leadership personalities all while immersing into wildlife and having fun. Throughout their first year of employment within the W.I.L.D. Program, the teens will work, learn and play through a wide variety of projects like exploring North Florida’s wild places, river kayaking, hands-on conservation research, serving as JZG brand ambassadors, camping, speaking publicly, fellowshipping with other teen leaders from different communities as well as presenting a variety of animals from the African aardvark to Florida natives like the American alligator and Florida pine snake.
If you know teens or have students between the ages of 15 and 18* who would be an asset to this program, please print out the attached informational flyer and brochure or share the application link with them! Remind them to complete and submit the 2018 W.I.L.D. Steward Application by March 31, 2018:
Even if the teens or students you know have zero interest in science or animals, please share this with them. 90% of the students currently working in this program had and still have no interest in working in those fields, yet are still benefitting and even thriving within this program.
We look forward to hearing from, meeting and hopefully working with the teens in your area! Thank you for all that you do!
P.S. Please feel free to share this with any teachers, groups or persons that you think would be interested or have interested students or teens.
