We Are The Good Start Ambassadors

Throughout the first few weeks of college the Good Start Ambassador's friendly faces will be around campus at events, talks and workshops and of course manning the Just Ask! desks helping new students settle in. You'll know them by their Just Ask! t-shirts and red hoodies. Say 'Hello' if you see them around campus and if you have any questions about CIT be sure to ask them! Don't be shy, all of the team members were in first year in CIT once too and want to help. They will be able to point you in the right direction or offer a helping hand.

Below are the Good Start Ambassadors from 2016/2017
