The title of SCAD Student Ambassador is a coveted student leadership position here at SCAD. We are a group comprised of the highest caliber of SCAD students. Each of us selected to represent our institution in an assortment of ways. Think back to when you were applying to SCAD, still bright-eyed prospective SCAD Bees, debating whether or not you’d take the leap and come to SCAD. Did you come to a SCAD Day? Did you hop on a Tour? Visit with a Class Buddy or a Lunch Buddy and talk about what it’s like to be a SCAD Student? Chances are, you’ve run into plenty of our SCAD Student Ambassadors already! Student Ambassadors work in conjunction with the SCAD Admission department. Our mission is to promote SCAD admission and public relations by demonstrating quality and excellence in every aspect of recruitment and community outreach initiatives. Ambassadors help create exceptional guest experiences by sharing their unique experiences with prospective students.
We help organize and execute every SCAD Day, we are each trained to be professional, eloquent, knowledgeable representatives of the school at these events. On SCAD Days, both here and at our Atlanta Campus, we host tours of the campus. We serve as Ambassadors of the college to prospective students that request class visits, lunches with current students, or even e-mail buddies. We also go out and represent SCAD in the community through various volunteer efforts like our Young at Art Program, dedicated to expanding art awareness in local Elementary and Middle Schools. We also encounter countless opportunities to participate in exclusive college and community happenings- But don’t think it’s all work and no play- our socials, banquets, and end-of-the-year events are some of the most memorable experiences we’ve had here at SCAD!
As I’ve mentioned to the ambassadors, this organization will allow you extraordinary opportunities if you give it the chance. The opportunities are expansive- to learn organizational, leadership, and professional skills- to network, and meet some of the best people you’ll ever work with- to be a part of such an important group of students, entrusted to carry and build the institution’s reputation, adding value to not only your resumes but to your own degrees- all while having the most fun you’ll ever have as part of one of SCAD’s premium student organizations. We can’t stress enough how fulfilling it is to be a part of the SCAD Student Ambassadors, there’s really only one way to appreciate it truly, and that’s by experiencing it for yourself- so we invite each of you the opportunity to apply to become a part of our Student Ambassador family this year!
