● Public Speaking and Communication Skills: Being able to communicate information in

a clear and engaging way is a skill that will serve you well throughout your life. As a

your unique signature experience, and be a student keynote speaker at one of our large

programs.

and encouraging manner. You will learn what it means to provide the highest level of

customer service, the impact of the campus visit, and how to ensure each guest enjoys

employer around our campus, or giving a tour to a high-profile donor. You will also have

the opportunity to meet campus administrators and other dignitaries.

● Leadership: Your experience in the University Ambassadors hinges on what you put into

it. If you are interested in gaining leadership skills within our program, there are elected

positions which manage and govern the organization with increased hours and

responsibilities.
