Program FAQs

FAQs ImageQ: When will the Presidential Ambassadors be notified that they’re selected? 

A: Decisions will be made as quickly as possible, ideally before Christmas break.


Q: How will I be notified if selected? 

A: You will be notified through your Berry e-mail address.


Q: Will I be notified if I’m not selected for Ambassador? 

A: Yes, we will notify each student who interviewed of our decision.


Q: How many students are being interviewed? How many will be selected? 

A: More than 90 students have scheduled an interview. We will select 30-35 new Presidential Ambassadors.


Q. When will I start serving as a Presidential Ambassador if selected? 

A. New Ambassadors will begin assisting with activities when spring semester starts.


Q: Will I receive training if selected? 

A: Yes! There will be a mandatory, one-day orientation conference for Presidential Ambassadors. It is scheduled for Saturday, January 14 (mid-morning to mid-afternoon). Please tentatively reserve this date/timeframe in your schedule. Additional details will be shared once Ambassadors have been selected.


Q: What if I’m selected but I can’t attend the orientation conference scheduled for Saturday, January 14? 

A: You will be able to discuss this with the Presidential Ambassador advisor, Wendy Dahlgren, after being selected as an Ambassador. 


Q: How much of a time commitment will being a Presidential Ambassador involve? 

A: It will not be a huge time commitment. Presidential Ambassadors are asked to assist with 4 activities each semester. Most Ambassador activities will last 2-3 hours, though the time commitment varies based on the nature of the activity. Ambassadors receive e-mails about activity opportunities and sign up to help as their schedules permit (i.e. they are not assigned to activities – they decide what they are involved with as it suits their schedules and interests).


Q: What do Presidential Ambassadors do? 

A: Presidential Ambassadors are called on to assist with important events and guests associated with the Office of the President, the Advancement Office, the Office of Admissions and more. Giving tours of campus is a primary activity for Ambassadors. In addition to leading tours of campus, Ambassadors in recent years have also hosted prospective students overnight, assisted with the Gloria Shatto Lecture event (for guest speakers like Tony Dungy, Ben Carson and Steve Forbes), supported the Office of the President when the Board of Trustees and Board of Visitors were on campus, served as ushers during commencement and more.


Q: What are the incentives for being a Presidential Ambassador? 

A: In addition to the experience and networking opportunities you will gain by volunteering with important Berry events and guests, Presidential Ambassadors receive a Berry College nametag and polo, plus they have the opportunity to attend appreciation receptions hosted by college administrators. Upon graduation, Presidential Ambassadors also receive letters of recommendation from President Briggs.
