Motlow Ambassador Program
The Motlow Ambassador Program provides a distinct leadership experience. This is a volunteer opportunity for students to be inspired for holistic growth, which in turn will prepare you for the workforce, equipped with the skills necessary to succeed. Motlow Ambassadors learn leadership skills, peer to peer mentorship, professional development, and communication skills. The group will provide campus tours, and represent the College for recruitment and community special events. In addition, Ambassadors will play a key role in new student orientations during the summer. Ambassadors are top representatives of the student body and the college as a whole. They demonstrate knowledge about the college, its programs, history and purpose, and the multitude of programs and services it provides. Ambassadors are held in high esteem as they strive to be role models within the College and greater community.
