Being a Lion Ambassador is a wonderful way to meet new people and form life-long friendships.  Ambassadors have numerous opportunities to interact with current students and faculty as well as perspective students and their families.

Not only are the main goals of the Lion Ambassador Organization to gain leadership skills, public speaking skills and time-management skills that are necessary for everyday life, but it is also a goal of the organization to help students continuously improve upon these skills for future preparation.

 

How can I become a Lion Ambassador?

Lion Ambassadors must maintain a minimum academic grade point average of 2.5 while a member of the organization. 

Lion Ambassadors can be nominated by faculty and/or staff at the campus and then the students are selected by the Admissions staff.

Students may also apply on their own to become a Lion Ambassador by filling out the application on the web or by contacting Holli Lashinsky in the Admission office (Enrollment Services House) for an application.

Throughout the year, the admissions staff also keeps a look-out for students that stand out that may possess all the qualities of an outstanding Lion Ambassador.  The students are then contacted by the admissions office asking if they would be interested in becoming a member of the organization.

All applicants are required to go through an interview before the selection process takes place.

For more information on the Lion Ambassador program, please contact Holli Lashinsky  or  Garrett Roen
