Department – Admissions Office
Job Title – Admissions Ambassador

Purpose of Job

  • Admission ambassadors are undergraduate students hand-picked for jobs in the Admission office. When a prospective student and his/her family arrive for a visit, the admission office in Voorhees Hall is usually their first destination. Soon after checking in, visitors meet an admission ambassador who will help make their campus visit enjoyable and educational.
  • Admission ambassadors perform a wide variety of tasks to help the admission office run smoothly. They help with mass and personal mailing projects, make phone calls to prospective students, help coordinate campus visits and conduct campus tours for prospective and their families. The admission ambassadors are well trained in all aspects of their jobs. To qualify as a tour guide, for example, ambassadors attend a three-hour training session the first week of fall classes. They must read and retain information in a training manual, pass a 25-question written test that addresses questions commonly asked by visiting families, conduct practice tours and be certified by an admission counselor as a qualified tour guide.
  • Admission ambassadors are often influential in helping prospective students and their families decide whether Carroll might be a good fit. Tour groups are kept small and the hour-long tour is a time for conversation between the student guide and visitors. Tour guides share their own experiences in selecting Carroll and their perspectives as Carroll students, both of which can be helpful to visitors.
