VCSU Viking Ambassadors are dedicated students who love and value the knowledge and experiences they gain from Valley City State University. This group of excited individuals is one of the key factors when it comes to new student recruitment. Having been there at one time, they are comfortable talking about what they love about the school while also providing factual details about the campus, the faculty/staff, and the student body. With multiple programs being pursue by them, the group of 30 students represent the various departments on campus. With a wide range of personalities, opinions, and ideas, this group is a fun part of campus life.
What do we do? Well, a lot of everything. Viking Ambassadors play a major roll on the Valley City State University campus. Below are just a few of the areas you may see us!
Probably one of our most common jobs, Viking Ambassadors supply campus tours to prospective students, faculty, and staff on a regular basis. These students, who have all been through the transition to college, can help answer questions any student may have. We want to make sure your move to college is the best it can be, and it all starts with your first trip to Valley City State University.
Viking Ambassadors have a representative serve on the VCSU Student Senate. The voice of the students is heard at VCSU Student Senate and Viking Ambassadors makes certain we do what we can FOR the students at VCSU.
One of our major events, Viking Ambassadors create care packages for students during Fall Finals. These are available for purchase by parents and are a nice sign of support to any student during this stressful time.
Each Ambassadors helps our Admission Counselors and learns the ins-and-outs about VCSU. We even call prospective students to keep in touch and answer questions about the college admission process.
