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

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

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!
