How to Get Involved in the Ambassador Program

Why should I apply to be a College of Education Ambassador? In addition to non-monetary awards, College of Education ambassadors get to meet new people, share their knowledge and love of NMSU and help students every day! They also build connections throughout campus by working closely with the College of Education, University Admissions, and other departments on campus.

What will the College of Education Ambassador Organization do for my Future? Students chosen to be part of this elite group receive valuable training and develop skills in problem solving, team building, interpersonal communication, diversity, public speaking, and dining etiquette, making them more marketable in today’s workforce. Through this organization, College of Education ambassadors have opportunities to use these skills.

What is being a College of Education Ambassador all about? The College of Education ambassador organization is an amazing opportunity for students with a desire to help others and promote New Mexico State University. We are looking for outgoing, friendly students with a genuine love for NMSU who want to give campus tours, provide excellent customer service, recruit new students and be positive role models.
