Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors provide a strong connection between students and alumni, and help graduating students transition to alumni status. The group hosts networking events and programs, as well as career mentoring and social opportunities.

Student Ambassadors 2017The Hope College Student Ambassadors includes 30+ sophomores, juniors and seniors. The group is selected each spring through a competitive application process, and meets twice monthly. It is co-advised by staff representatives from Development and Alumni and Family Engagement.

Group members connect with alumni at a variety of events, such as Homecoming and Alumni Weekend, and are responsible for unique programming on campus throughout the year.

In turn, these students benefit from valuable leadership experience, unique networking opportunities and professional and personal development training. The Student Ambassadors participate in both the Gallup StrengthsFinder and the Myers Briggs Type Indicator, and take part in leadership development through group readings, guest speakers, and holistic training to guide each individual through the process of identity formation and vocational discernment.
