Student ambassadors can help with informing students about the steps to enroll in school, staff’s office locations and different programs available for students.

“I’m not a license council or advisor but I will map out instructions that will lead you to one on campus,” said Jeff Hancock, 29, Business major.

The Information Center is open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Mondays through Thursdays.

On Fridays student ambassadors are available from 3 p.m. to 6 p.m.

The maximum hours an ambassador can work a week is 20 hours making minimum wage.

“I may stay past hours at times so students may get help. It is not a matter of getting paid but of assisting students,” Don Walker, 62, ambassador, Administrative Justice. “I enjoy bonding with friends here on the job.”

Students need help with different things and sometimes the ambassadors can’t help. But they can guide students to the right place where they can be assisted.

“Some people make request that we are unable to assist them in. We suggest the people that can help them with their request,” Hancock said. “I cannot give you pizza but I can let you know they serve slices at a charge in the cafeteria.”
