Each year, Southwestern Community College hires its finest students to act as a team of ambassadors for the college. These enthusiastic individuals assist the admissions department by giving campus tours; meeting with future students and their parents; communicating with future students via texting, social media, and phone calls; accompanying recruiters to college fairs and high school visits; working office hours in the admissions department; and participating in other public relations efforts for the college.
The student ambassadors are a group of energetic individuals with excellent leadership and communication skills. Ambassadors must be willing to work as part of a team and be excited about what SWCC has to offer students and the community.
How will being a Student Ambassador benefit you? The student ambassador program will allow you to grow as an individual, gain leadership skills, develop greater self-confidence, improve communication skills, and become involved in campus activities. You will come in contact with a great number of people both on-campus and off-campus. This will be an excellent activity to include on your resume. Student ambassadors are paid by the hour.
