Twelve veterinary students, representing first, second and third-year classes, have been chosen to become the first College of Veterinary Medicine Student Ambassadors.
The ambassadors will serve as representatives at a variety of special events such as New Student Orientation, Open House, Midwest Veterinary Conference, White Coat Ceremony, Honors and Awards Ceremony, Oath and Hooding, and admissions interview events as well as alumni activities. They will also interact with new and prospective students, participate in student panels and recruiting activities, and conduct veterinary medical centers tours for new and prospective students, alumni, and guests.
The ambassadors were chosen for their strong leadership qualities, interpersonal skills, and sense of school spirit and pride. These students come from all backgrounds and from multiple states, thereby representing the diverse nature of our student body.
The ambassadors were required to attend customer service and tour training. They are expected to maintain regular communication with the Office of Student Affairs, be knowledgeable about the college, and serve as a positive role model for current and prospective students. For their hard work and dedication, student ambassadors will receive a scholarship funded by the (OVMA) Ohio Veterinary Medical Association.
