Student Ambassador Program

Thank you for your interest in the Cheyney University Student Ambassador Program!

Below you will find information for the Student Ambassador Program for 2015-2016. Please read all the information provided. 

The Cheyney University Student Ambassadors are student positions funded through the Cheyney University Foundation who work directly with the Office of Admissions. The group consists of approximately 25 students who assist in the promotion of Cheyney University to prospective students, their parents and the high school guidance community.

 The goals of the Ambassadors are to:

  • Inform prospective students and parents interested in Cheyney University about all facets of Cheyney Student life -- academic programs, faculty and students, physical facilities, social opportunities, and student services.
  • Assist with important public relations programs such as bi-annual Open House programs, information sessions, campus tours, etc.
  • Personalize the University by making campus visitors feel welcome, comfortable, and positive about Cheyney University by demonstrating sincerity, enthusiasm, credibility, interest, and helpfulness. 

Activities of the Ambassadors may include:

  • Representing Cheyney University, by giving campus tours to college visitors.
  • Participating in Cheyney University’s Fall and Spring Open House programs.
  • Assisting, as needed, at special recruitment events that occur throughout the year.
  • Attending training sessions. 

Membership in the Cheyney University Student Ambassador Program is limited.

Selection criteria include:

  • Dedication to the group and ability to commit necessary time, which is dependent upon the position (i.e., senior-level, junior-level and entry-level)
  • Sincere desire to represent Cheyney University
  • Effective speaking ability
  • Ability to make a positive first impression
  • Ability to adapt to a variety of situations
  • Ability to work well with others
  • Enthusiasm about Cheyney University

Although hard work and commitment are required, much of the individual participation in activities can be worked around Ambassadors’ class and study schedules. Our Ambassadors are STUDENTS FIRST!

  • Being part of a dynamic, helping organization
  • Opportunity to work with and learn from Cheyney University staff
  • Broaden contacts among faculty, staff, students, and administration for pleasure, help on campus, and references upon graduation
