Student Ambassadors

College is only about studying, books and tests, right? WRONG. School is also to help give you new experiences and let you grow and lead. That’s the aim of our Student Ambassador Program at RCC.
Student Ambassadors:

  • Work together to create new events
  • Conduct outreach programs for students
  • Give campus tours
  • Staff the Welcome Desk
  • Write the student newsletter
  • And much more!

Ambassadors are made up of 20 students, 10 from Glenns and 10 from Warsaw, who meet weekly as a group. For more information about becoming an ambassador, please contact Dr. Keel, Dean of Student Development.
