Welcome to the Student Success College Ambassadors Program Webpage!
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.
The College Ambassadors Program Provides Opportunity:
Participants of the College Ambassadors program have the opportunity to gain valuable professional and leadership experience through serving NVC at a higher level as a role model and student expert. Students support the brand and pride of NVC through service to Enrollment Services and throughout campus; working with faculty and staff members to positively enhance the college and its environment.
College Ambassadors will represent the ideals of a model NVC student through volunteering at Recruitment events such as New Student Orientation, Visit Vista Preview, College Connection School Visits, and Group/Individual Tours. All volunteers will also undergo extensive training to learn the history, mission, values, expectations, and enrollment strategies of Northwest Visit College to become effective Enrollment representatives.
