Student Ambassadors

Being selected as a student ambassador is a great honor and those selected should feel pride as they’ve been invited by the Dean’s Office to represent their college and the University. After Honors Convocation and Commencement, the Commencement Office will provide both the President’s Office and Dean’s Office with a final list of participating student ambassadors so they may receive formal recognition.


Student ambassadors can be given housing extensions to stay on campus until after the event. You will be asked to indicate need when registering.


Ambassadors are needed for many responsibilities that ensure a successful celebration such as:

  • early morning set-up;
  • assisting in various areas of campus with parking and crowd flow control;
  • assisting mobility impaired guests to their seats;
  • distributing programs;
  • assisting photographers;
  • staffing various information and vending booths; and
  • assisting with post-event clean-up.
