Ambassador Schedule

Preview Days

We ask that each Ambassador participates in a minimum of two Preview Days each semester.  We understand it can be a demanding time commitment, so we do not require Ambassadors to house for each Preview Day.  Should you take on this role, it is crucial to communicate with your Team Leader promptly whether or not you plan on housing for the upcoming Preview Day in order for us to secure accommodations for our guests.

Ambassadors must live on campus in order to house guests.

Living off-campus?  You can still help!  Many of our visiting students choose to come for Sunday evening events but stay the night in a hotel or with family off-campus.  If you live off-campus, we would still love your help to welcome students from Sunday dinner until they depart after the Gathering.

*Scholarship Weekends differ from typical Preview Days.  These weekends are set apart for students who have already been accepted and are competing for academic awards.  We always need extra help for these events as we expect a high number of students to attend and stay on campus.  This year, we have added an additional Scholarship Weekend in order to increase and improve this process.  Details and info of these schedules will be notified closer to each event.
