DAAP Student Ambassadors

DAAP Student Ambassadors comprise an organization created to provide student representation at a variety of public relations and recruitment activities held on behalf of the college. Ambassadors are selected through an interview process and receive extensive training about college functions and DAAP's facilities.

What is an ambassador? By representing the student viewpoint, DAAP Ambassadors serve as positive spokespeople for the College at admissions and public relations events.

What can you gain? Ambassadors gain valuable leadership skills by honing public speaking skills and networking with a wide variety of people, from prospective students to alumni.

How can you apply? Stop by the Student Affairs Office, Aronoff 5470, or visit the DAAP Student Affairs webpage for an application. Applications are accepted year round.
