Program Quick Facts

Program Quick Facts ImageWhat is a Presidential Ambassador? 

A Presidential Ambassador is a Berry student volunteer who has been selected and trained to represent the Berry student community for a range of high profile campus events and guests.

How many Presidential Ambassadors are there? 

We typically have about 100 Presidential Ambassadors serving each year.

What do Presidential Ambassadors do? 

Presidential Ambassadors assist with events and guests of the Office of the President, the Advancement Office, the Office of Admissions, the Alumni Relations Office and other departments across campus. One of their primary activities is giving tours to guests of the campus – Presidential Ambassadors must be willing to give tours! Other Ambassador activities include – but are not limited to –hosting prospective students for overnight stays, serving on Discover Berry student panels, sharing meals with the Board of Trustees or Board of Visitors, assisting with the Gloria Shatto Lecture event, serving as ushers during commencement and more.

Are Presidential Ambassadors paid? 

Presidential Ambassadors serve on a volunteer basis; they are not paid.

Why should I consider being a Presidential Ambassador? 

Serving as an Ambassador allows students to develop their interpersonal, networking and communication skills, and to contribute to the Berry College community in greater depth. They have the opportunity to assist with a wide range of campus guests – such as alumni, national and international dignitaries, donors and other Berry friends, prospective students and their parents, and guest speakers like Tony Dungy, Ben Carson or Steve Forbes. For some campus activities, the Presidential Ambassadors are the only current students called upon for assistance. The ultimate goal is for all Presidential Ambassadors to gain experiences that will benefit them in their future endeavors.

How are Presidential Ambassadors selected? 

To be considered for Presidential Ambassador, students must first be nominated by a faculty or staff member. Once nominated, students are invited to apply. Selected applicants are then invited to interview and the final Presidential Ambassadors are chosen from the interview process. Please note, the selection process takes place once a year – during fall semester.

When will the Presidential Ambassador selection process take place? 

The selection process for Presidential Ambassadors takes place once a year – during fall semester. The selection process typically begins after mid-term. All faculty, staff and students are notified by campus e-mail when the selection process begins. Interviews typically take place before Thanksgiving Break and final selections are typically announced before winter break begins. Newly selected Presidential Ambassadors attend Presidential Ambassador Orientation in January – shortly after returning from winter break - and begin serving Berry College upon completion of orientation.

What kind of time commitment does being a Presidential Ambassador involve? 

Most Presidential Ambassadors are serving in other leadership positions across campus. For this reason there is minimal time commitment. Ambassadors assist with 4 activities each semester, which vary in nature and typically last anywhere from 30 minutes to several hours. Other time commitments include participation in a half-day orientation process and attending an occasional meeting, as well regularly monitoring e-mails for Ambassador-related announcements.

What should I do if I want to be nominated for Presidential Ambassador? 

We encourage you to talk to your academic advisor, professors, work supervisors and/or club/organization advisors about your interest in being nominated. All faculty and staff members are eligible to nominate students for Presidential Ambassador consideration.
