Alvernia University Student Ambassadors

Mission Statement

The Alvernia University Student Ambassadors Program was founded to educate prospective students and their parents about Alvernia University, from both the academic and social perspectives. In addition, the Student Ambassadors actively participate in campus events, generate student involvement, and serve as a network for other activities and organizations on campus.

Application Process

A Student Ambassador applicant must submit an application including an essay explaining why he/she wishes to become an ambassador. The applicant must also provide two (2) letters of recommendation. The program advisors will conduct interviews of the applicants. The Student Ambassador Program is competitive and the advisors will make final decisions on acceptance into the program. The program reviews applications each semester.

A Student Ambassador must maintain “good standing” to remain in the program.
