Manship Ambassadors

 

The Manship Ambassadors help recruit great students, give tours of facilities, meet with dignitaries and visitors, and help run Manship School student orientations for freshmen, pre-mass communication students and newly admitted students. You must be an incoming junior or senior in the Manship School to apply to be a Manship Ambassador. Ambassador applications are available early in the spring semester. A committee interviews and selects the student ambassadors. Leadership experience and knowledge of the Manship School are key components in the selection.
