The Ambassador Program

We are starting this alum 'Ambassador' program to help potential applicants to our MS in CS program better understand the ins and outs of our program and our college from a colleague's perspective.  For example, if a public school teacher in Hagerstown wants to know more about the program, we will refer Mr. Peter O'Conner, a current Master Degree student and a current teacher at WCPS.

I am building up this list slowly, whenever I ran into some student or alum who volunteers.  We will appreciate if you volunteer.  Please send me your employer and contact method.
