Admissions Ambassadors for the North Country
Most influential person you have met at SUNY Plattsburgh so far and why? Professor Heather La Point, nursing professor/lab instructor. She was the most influential because she was so dedicated to her job and helping us learn by being available and approachable. She taught me the importance of nursing care and patient wellness as well as people skills and valuable life lessons.
Favorite experience at SUNY Plattsburgh and why? Relay for Life was my favorite experience because I got to have fun with my peers while raising money for an amazing cause and meeting people in the Plattsburgh community.
Favorite spot on campus and why? The Hawkins Pond. I love to grab a bagel and coffee from Einstein's and relax by the fountain before and after class.

Most influential person you have met at SUNY Plattsburgh so far and why? Jackie Girard Vogl, the Assistant Vice President of International Enrollment Management has been transformational in my SUNY Plattsburgh experience. I met Jackie while working over the summer in the Global Education Office. The first day we spent working together, Jackie spent time getting to know me, along with my educational and life passions. I am not an international student, and I have yet to study aboard with SUNY Plattsburgh however Jackie was no less excited about me, as a student and as a person. Jackie showed me and continues to show me that the faculty and staff here at SUNY Plattsburgh truly care about their students.
Favorite experience at SUNY Plattsburgh and why? My favorite experience since transferring last spring has been my involvement in the Ski and Snowboard Club. They welcomed me into the group with enthusiasm and I am now- just one semester later- the secretary of the club! It has given me the chance to work alongside my peers to share our love of Adirondack winters through both on and off campus recreation.
Favorite spot on campus and why? One of my favorite spots on campus is the area surrounding Hawkins Pond. The pond, with its fountain and green space, provides a relaxing environment to study and meet with friends. This same area becomes very lively when it is being used from events, such as Plattyslack’s Slackest or EAC's Ecofest.
The Admissions Office is located on the 10th floor of the Kehoe Building.
