The College Ambassadors Program Promotes Enrichment:
Northwest Vista College is committed to creating opportunities for success by offering quality academic, technical and life-long learning experiences to its diverse communities in a collaborative, student-centered, data-informed and shared leadership environment. One way Student Success helps support this mission is by enhancing student engagement through experiences that enrich the community, build future leaders, and celebrates the culture of NVC with pride.  Through the revamped College Ambassador program, students will gain the skills and empowerment needed to complete their NVC journey with heightened civic and professional awareness that will aide in the progress towards their academic and professional goals.

Additionally, students must exemplify excellent customer service and communication skills, have a willingness to serve others and the community, and have a can-do, enthusiastic attitude.
