New Tour Guide Gear - Maryland Images Dress for Success
Who are we?
We are Maryland Images, the tour guide organization at the University of Maryland. We work with the Office of Enrollment Management and act as the premiere image of this university for prospective students, their families, and other high school or college-age groups across the country. We serve as representatives of the university and showcase the diversity and countless opportunities available here to visitors. As the tour guides on campus, we strive for professionalism, positivity, and dedication in all aspects of our organization. We are a volunteer organization, and because of this, we would like funding to provide our volunteer tour guides with adequate tour apparel for all four seasons.
What do we need?
Due to funding, we are currently unable to provide appropriate and uniform apparel for our tour guides. Since we are the first impression of this university for over 50,000 annual visitors, it is imperative that our tour guides' apparel reflects their important role on campus. The money we raise would be used for new apparel for our tour guides. We have over 200 guides who give hundreds of tours every semester in all weather conditions, and we are unable to provide proper apparel for them. We are interested in providing items like Maryland-branded umbrellas, winter hats, rain coats, winter jackets, gloves, long sleeve shirts, and scarves. Our guides are the University of Maryland's first point of contact with prospective students, and professional, weather-appropriate apparel will help us make an even better first impression on these students and their families; we want to be easily identifiable on campus.
