Weekly Updates!

Thank you all for a great day on Monday! Here are a few important announcements as a follow-up to our training day:
  • Complete the Ambassador Assessment by Friday, September 9.
    • Ambassadors are required to score at least a 90% on the assessment before giving Open House tours (if you do not score a 90%, we will follow-up with you to re-take the assessment). You may use your Admissions magazine as a resource but please complete the assessment on your own. This is valuable information for you to be aware of when interacting with prospective students!
  • Be sure to:
    • Check the "Chapel Hosting" tab each week as a reminder of when you are hosting.
    • Sign-up for Overnight hosting and Open House day tours on the respective tabs, as well. You can start signing up now!
    • Use this Tour Training Video as a great resource while you are preparing for your practice tours. This link is also available on the Ambassador Portal under "Training".
  • Dress code for Ambassador tours on Open House days includes:
    • Ambassador t-shirt/jacket, jeans or khakis
      • New Ambassadors - you will be provided with your Ambassador jacket after completing your practice tour this month.
    • Ambassador nametag (New Ambassadors - you will receive this soon!)
    • No shorts or leggings
Have a great first week of classes, everyone!
