The University of Toledo Office of Special Events is accepting applications for the Presidential Ambassadors student organization through 5 p.m. Friday, Feb. 14.
Ambassadors come from many different academic backgrounds, but they all share a number of important traits: excellence at the University, professionalism, hospitality, character and Rocket pride.“We’re looking for a diverse group of students who want to engage with UToledo leaders, University donors and alumni,” said Michele Ross, events coordinator and Presidential Ambassador adviser.
“We only accept the finest students on campus,” Ross said. “A minimum 3.0 GPA is required to be eligible, and students must show leadership qualities by being active on campus.”
Students selected for this honorary organization have the opportunity to interact with distinguished business, government and educational leaders by attending and assisting with UToledo events.
The Presidential Ambassadors have been around for nearly three decades. Members volunteer at special University events, including ribbon-cutting ceremonies, donor recognition events, dedication ceremonies, community-wide events such as the Veteran’s Day Breakfast and the MLK Unity Celebration, athletic contests, and more.
Approximately 20 new members will be selected this year.
“Ideal candidates are outgoing, responsible, professional and enthusiastic, and have a love for The University of Toledo,” Ross said.
The application and more details are on the Presidential Ambassadors’ website.
