Student Ambassador Application
Individuals interested in serving as Olney Central College Student Ambassadors are encouraged to submit an application as soon as possible.
Student ambassadors are trained student leaders who represent OCC at various college activities. These students act as valuable sources of information and liaisons between students, staff and faculty.
By working with various staff and department faculty, the ambassadors will assist with orientation, recruit prospective students, promote campus-wide events, provide tours to campus visitors and assist with retention activities and programs.
Students wishing to serve as ambassadors should demonstrate strong written, oral and telephone skills, reliability, leadership initiative and enthusiasm. They also must be able to participate during both the fall and spring semesters .
To qualify, students must be enrolled in a minimum of 12 OCC hours in the fall and spring, maintain a minimum cumulative GPA of 2.0 and be a returning student. In addition, they will need to be able to volunteer a total of 225 hours per semester (about 15 hours per week).
Applications are available at www.iecc.edu/occ. The form should be typed and must be accompanied by two letters of recommendation, with no more than one letter being from an IECC employee.
Completed applications and letters of recommendation should be submitted to Vicki Thompson in the Student Services Office. A selection committee will consider academic accomplishments and extra-curricular activities within high school, college and the community. Two students will be selected to serve for the 2014-2015 academic year and will receive 15 credit hour tuition waivers each semester. The waivers apply to OCC hours only.
