The first-ever Campus Ambassador Week showcases the efforts of the students who give tours, promote the College and do so much more.
For many students at Schoolcraft College, one of their first interactions with campus comes in the form of a tour. Tours are led by Student Ambassadors who devote their time assisting with campus programs and represent the Schoolcraft College community.
This week, Schoolcraft College is celebrating its first-ever Student Ambassador Week. This week will include sharing information about the program and showcasing the students that wear the signature blue-and-gold polo shirt.
Our Student Ambassadors showcase the very best that Schoolcraft College has to offer, and we are proud to highlight their accomplishments.
Student Ambassadors have several duties on campus. Some of which include giving campus tours to prospective students and assisting at both on- and- off campus events such as commencement. This program provides an excellent way for students to get involved on campus, meet new people, and gain multiple leadership experiences that help build their resume.
In exchange for doing 50 hours of service per semester and maintaining a 3.0 GPA, Student Ambassadors receive a $1,500 scholarship. Student Ambassadors must be enrolled for at least six credit hours per fall/winter semester.
Interested in becoming a Student Ambassador? Applications for the 2024-2025 academic year open Feb. 1. Those interested in applying can do so by visiting the college’s scholarship website.
