“New and prospective students often want to hear from an actually college student,” said Frank Myers, Associate Director of Enrollment Management and organization advisor. “The Aggie Ambassadors are the perfect individuals to share experiences and answer questions from this peer perspective.”
Aggie Ambassadors lead campus tours, assist with hosting students at Aggie Enrollment Days and Gold Rush, and serve in various roles as needed at other university events. The Aggie Ambassadors complete training to become familiar with the entire campus community to include academic programs and student resources. This training is important as the Aggie Ambassadors play a key role in introducing new and prospective students to Cameron University.
Freshmen, sophomores and juniors are eligible to apply to become an Aggie Ambassador. Applicants are interviewed by a committee. Once selected as an Aggie Ambassador, students receive either a $1,000 tuition waiver, housing waiver or stipend, must maintain a GPA of at least 2.5, and meet participation requirements for the program.
