Student Ambassadors play an integral role in the future of Douglas College
Every now and then you will see posters and messages about recruiting new Student Ambassadors. But who are they? And what is their deal?
A Student Ambassador shares their Douglas College experience honestly and positively. They assist the Future Students’ Office (FSO) with recruitment, contribute to the College community and maintain positive relationships with future students, their families, supporters and high school counsellors.
If selected, Student Ambassadors participate in a fun-filled six hours of training followed by an annual retreat and monthly professional development sessions to help them enhance their skills. Examples include resume building, public speaking, and self-care workshops.
They participate in a variety of events both on and off campus. Student Ambassadors help with regular events like Information Sessions where they greet guests and welcome them to campus. Most importantly, Student Ambassadors share their experience with future students so they can decide if Douglas College is the right fit for them.
Student Ambassadors volunteer a minimum of 20 hours per semester, attend monthly meetings and maintain a GPA of 2.5 or higher. The role comes with responsibility but some big perks too! Polo shirts, lockers, water bottles, hoodies and more! Bigger rewards include priority registration, and opportunities for paid positions as Campus Tour Leaders or Student Assistants for the FSO. Those who go above and beyond could even be nominated for the Student Ambassador Award of Distinction, a $500 scholarship awarded biannually!
When you become a Student Ambassador you become part of an incredible group of people who work together and contribute to the future of Douglas College. It is an opportunity that you don’t want to miss out! Apply by Sept. 8 at douglascollege.ca/studentambassadors.
