“I would totally recommend this program to others! Regardless of a student’s level of confidence or school involvement, being a student ambassador will drastically improve those levels!”
“Being a student ambassador has opened so many doors for me! I’ve been able to meet people and do things that I may never have done had I not been an ambassador. It has been an enormous honor to serve CFCC and has been hugely fulfilling!”
“I have loved being a CFCC Student Ambassador. It’s great to feel that I was part of something bigger than myself.”
According to pre-and post-experience surveys of the Ambassador teams, ambassadors showed improvement in areas such as communication skills, professionalism & customer service, leadership & personal development.
Each spring semester, the CFCC Foundation 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, fees and books. 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 links to your right.
