  • Greet and provide general information and assistance to campus visitors
  • Travel with  University recruitment staff to outreach events (on occasion and when available)
  • Serve as a resource for fellow students
  • Attend Student Ambassador meetings

Qualifications:

  • Must be nominated by program faculty and appointed by the department chair.  Two students are chosen from each major program of study. Students are carefully selected based on academic performance, personality, character, communication skills and enthusiasm
  • Must be willing to learn about Fairmont State University, and its traditions, programs, and services
  • Must enjoy interacting with a variety of people
  • Must be reliable and punctual
  • Must be willing to assist during occasional weekends, evenings, and summer days

Benefits:

  • Student ambassadors develop leadership skills that help build a professional resume. Volunteer work reflects positively on a resume as well.  
  • Conversational and public-speaking skills are strengthened.
