The success of University of Northern Iowa Student Admissions Ambassadors was in a national spotlight at the recent conference of Affiliated Student Advancement Programs held in Kansas City, Missouri. UNI earned a 2010 Network Award for Outstanding Organization and Advisor Paul Sapp earned a 2010 Network Award for Outstanding Advisor.
The ambassadors are well known and held in high regard on campus for their contributions to the campus community. They introduce admissions guests to UNI through campus tours, they develop their communication and leadership skills through ambassador activities and they provide valuable input that helps UNI continue to provide premier campus visit experiences.
Each year five $1000 scholarships are awarded to ambassadors through a peer recommendation process.
There are 50 students serving as Student Admissions. An application and interview process brings new students to the group each semester.
