As part of the Admissions, Recruitment, and Outreach team, Matador Ambassadors help expand prospective and existing student awareness of the educational opportunities offered at Arizona Western College. Matador Ambassadors help with: advising students through the admissions process; hosting and attending educational events on and off campus; and conducting presentations when needed.
What We Do
Matador Ambassadors receive the training and guidance to help develop skills used to attract prospective students and provide encouragement for new students. We participate in events and activities that help promote AWC including:
- Campus tours
- College fairs
- School visits and classroom presentations
- Campus and community events
- Ground-breaking and ribbon-cutting ceremonies
- Welcome Center assistance
Matador Ambassadors are given various opportunities to develop and demonstrate their unique leadership skills. In order to further develop these skills and build a strong sense of communication and teamwork, Matadors Ambassadors participate in the following:
- Attend weekly meetings
- Attend Ambassador training prior to each semester
- Participate in campus-wide activities
- Uphold the AWC Code of Conduct
Training is conducted through a summer program. Training will empower and enable you to help promote the values of AWC, understand the programs and services offered, successfully conduct campus tours, answer general questions about AWC, and lots more!
You determine what your results will be from this experience. The best results can be accomplished with a positive attitude and active involvement. Be prepared to build your self-esteem and self-confidence, become part of a team, network with campus administrators and community members, develop outstanding presentation and leadership skills, and be recognized because of your work!
