ambassadorsApplication packets for 2014-2015 Lamar University Ambassadors are available through March 6, in the Office of Alumni Affairs located in the John Gray Center, Building B, Suite 102, on the Lamar University campus.  Sixteen openings will be available for new Ambassadors for the fall semester.  Lamar University Ambassadors represent the LU student body at official university events and work to promote university pride among students, prospective students, alumni and friends of Lamar.

“Ambassadors are a select group of students who serve Lamar University by assisting in building goodwill among alumni and community supporters at various public functions and representing the student body to visiting dignitaries,” said Linda LeBlanc, director of alumni affairs.  “They have a high level of involvement on campus and are well informed about the university and what it has to offer students, alumni and the community.”

Prospective ambassadors must be a full-time officially registered Lamar University student who has completed one full semester at Lamar and will be classified as a sophomore or junior in the fall of 2014, maintain a minimum cumulative grade-point average of 3.0, submit an official application including a letter of interest, transcript, faculty recommendation and resume, and have approval from his/her college dean.
