Become a Student Ambassador

Each spring semester, CFCC selects a team of student ambassadors to represent the College and the Foundation at a variety of events such as student registration and orientation, donor recognition events, and graduation ceremonies. Candidates for the CFCC Student Ambassador team must complete an application package and submit three letters of recommendation from faculty and staff of the College and other mentors from external sources. A committee appointed by the Executive Director of the CFCC Foundation interviews ambassador candidates and selects students to serve in the following year. Extensive training for new ambassadors is held during the summer. Ambassadors receive scholarship funds which may be applied toward their tuition. Official items of clothing are also provided. Applications for the Ambassador program are available to students in February of each year. For more information, see the info at the bottom of the page.
