Become a World Campus Student Ambassador

The Penn State World Campus Student Ambassador program was created to provide current World Campus students with a broad array of activities and service opportunities. Student Ambassadors can help to positively impact the overall student experience and foster a sense of community among all World Campus students.

As a Student Ambassador, you can engage with staff, faculty, and other students. You should plan to spend a minimum of one­ to two hours per month fulfilling this role, and you can select the service opportunities for which you wish to volunteer.

Some ways Student Ambassadors may become involved include:

  • attending regional and/or virtual events for World Campus students, prospective students, and alumni
  • serving as student leaders in New Student Orientation and mentoring new students
  • assisting with website usability testing to help inform possible changes
  • informing other World Campus students about programs, services, and resources available to them

The Student Affairs Office provides Ambassadors with opportunities for personal growth and development, including:

  • gaining knowledge and understanding of leadership in a virtual environment
  • advancing awareness of diversity around identities, cultures, and society
  • working with peers and University administrators
