The Office of Undergraduate Admission is holding auditions for candidates interested in becoming Admission Ambassadors: UT students that greet prospective students and families, give tours, help with recruitment events, and assist the office, said Aundy Bishop, assistant director of the campus visit experience.

Auditions will take place Wednesday, Aug. 27, at 5 p.m. in the Libbey Hall Dining Room on the second floor. Applications are available at the front desk, located on the second floor of Libbey Hall.

“The Admission Ambassadors are such an integral part of the recruitment efforts of our office, and this year we’ll be stepping up our game,” Bishop said. “We are looking for students who are enthusiastic about The University of Toledo — professional, motivated, and understand the importance of recruiting new students to the University.”

At auditions, students will have a group interview and participate in improv and public speaking activities, Bishop said.

“Students should represent UT with their dress and attitude,” she said. “They need a positive spirit and willingness to think on their toes.”

Bishop said there will be a lot of team-building and professional skills taught through on-the-job experiences, which will help students gain professional abilities that will benefit them in the workplace.

The position is paid $8 per hour. Current students are required to have a 2.5 grade point average, and incoming freshmen must have a high school cumulative GPA of 3.0.
