Student ambassadors serve as outstanding representatives of Whatcom Community College by strengthening connections with faculty, staff, and current and future students. Ambassadors provide tours for prospective students, market and attend campus events, guide community members to campus resources, and welcome new students at orientations. Student ambassadors strive to support student success and retention, provide peer leadership, promote diversity on campus, and assist with the successful transition of new students. Applications for this program are accepted annually in the spring quarter, and selected ambassadors serve a year-long term from September through June. Program participants earn a stipend for the 30+ hours they contribute per quarter. The student ambassador program is located in Syre Student Center, 208.
