Interested in being an Aggie Ambassador?
Thank you for considering an Aggie Ambassador position.
We appreciate the interest that you have shown in wanting to serve your university in an official capacity.
The Aggie Ambassador's primary responsibility is to plan, implement, and conduct the new student orientations, known as Gold Rush, at Cameron University. Also, they assist the university in a variety of other ways through university service. Being an Aggie Ambassador is a very BIG responsibility. For most students they are the first Cameron students that new students come in contact with. To these students THE AMBASSADORS ARE CAMERON UNIVERSITY. The way they conduct themselves in front of these students, what they do, what they say, and how they act, is a reflection of the whole CU student body and the CU administration as well. They see the ambassadors as the all knowing students at Cameron University.
The purpose of the Gold Rush is to help incoming freshmen make the transition from high school to college as smooth as possible. It is our goal to have a Gold Rush that is both informative and fun. We want them to know that they have made the right decision to attend Cameron University.
100% participation is required. The ambassadors are a team. Each member contributes a vital part to the team, much like an athletic team, a cast member in a play or a band member. If one team member is absent, then the ambassadors cannot perform like they should. The absent team member places the rest of the ambassadors in a very awkward and uncomfortable position. This will then be reflected at Gold Rush, showing the ambassadors as unorganized and/or unprepared to conduct Gold Rush. This in turn reflects back on the CU students, administration, and overall image of Cameron University.
The Aggie Ambassadors have become a well-known and highly recognized group at Cameron. Because of this, when ambassadors are acting in an official capacity, we expect exemplary behavior. Aggie Ambassadors are known to be knowledgeable, dependable, and reliable. Because of this, many departments will call upon the ambassadors to assist with their various activities. These calls for assistance are happily accepted because the more recognition the group receives on campus the better.
Before completing an application, we want you to ask yourself if you can make a 100% commitment to the Aggie Ambassadors by considering the following questions:
Will you be at the regularly scheduled training sessions and practices?
Will you be able to attend every Gold Rush?
Will family commitments keep you from meeting your ambassador obligations?
If you work, will you be able to arrange your work schedule so that you can meet your ambassador responsibilities?
Can you arrange your extra-curricular/social activities so that they will not interfere with your ambassador responsibilities?
Can you arrange your classes so that they will not interfere with your ambassador required obligations?
If you were able to answer "yes" to these questions, then you are a candidate for an ambassador position. However, if you answered "no" to any question, then it's likely that you will have a conflict with your ambassador responsibilities.
Being an Aggie Ambassador is demanding, but lots of fun. The experience gained will have a positive impact if you have the right attitude. You have been given some things to think about prior to completing your Aggie Ambassador application. We do not want in any way to scare you away from applying; instead, we just want you to fully realize what you will be getting into and what will be expected of you if you are selected for an ambassador position. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to give us a call!
