The Ambassadors are a group of students chosen to represent ABAC at a variety of functions. Ambassadors are selected at the beginning of each fall semester for their enthusiasm, premier leadership ability, and exceptional communication skills. The ABAC Ambassadors provide official campus tours, host visiting dignitaries, and assist with on-campus functions. Applications are available online. Mandatory personal interviews and a social are critical in the highly competitive selection process. The Ambassadors are the face of ABAC.
To be an ABAC Ambassador, students must meet the following MINIMUM requirements:
- Maintain a 2.5 cumulative GPA
- Attend ABAC for consecutive Fall and Spring terms. (Ambassadors are chosen in the fall and serve through the spring of the following year)
- Earn a minimum of 35 hours each semester with Ambassador duties supporting the Enrollment Management and Marketing and Communications
- Attend weekly meetings from 4 – 5 p.m. on Mondays. Ambassadors must schedule their classes around this meeting time.
