Cameron tradition continues with new Aggie Ambassadors

Eighteen Cameron University students have been selected to serve as Aggie Ambassadors, a campus tradition for 20 years. As official representatives of CU in 2010, they will assist with various Cameron activities, including the planning and implementation of Gold Rush, the university's orientation sessions for new students. Aggie Ambassadors also conduct campus tours, promote CU in the community and participate in official campus events.

The Aggie Ambassador program provides an opportunity for Cameron students to develop leadership and team-building skills, which can be tremendous assets when they enter the workforce.

Mitchel Massie of Duncan, who has been a member of the program for the past two years, will serve as the organization's president for 2010. "I enjoy being an Aggie Ambassador because I get to meet and help new people all the time," he says. "I look forward to all of the fun we are going to have this year."

Freshmen, sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply to become an Aggie Ambassador. Applicants are interviewed by a committee that includes student representation by the president of Aggie Ambassadors. Once selected as an Aggie Ambassador, students receive either a $500 tuition waiver or a housing waiver, and they must maintain a GPA of at least 2.5.
