College of Business Administration selects new ambassadors
Wednesday, April 30, 2014
MANHATTAN — The Kansas State University College of Business Administration has selected 25 students to join its College of Business Ambassadors program.
Ambassadors recruit prospective students and share their university experiences. They will assist with on- and off-campus recruitment events and represent the college and university at programs throughout the year.
Prior to being selected as part of the 49-member ambassador organization, the students had to successfully interview with current ambassadors and staff members with the college's office of student services. Bente Janda, director of student services, and Curtis Morisaki, recruitment coordinator, helped facilitate ambassador interviews and selection. Candidate applications were screened using a comprehensive matrix, with the top 48 being asked to speak about their Kansas State University experience and give a short presentation on how they would handle a prospective student tour.
"We are really excited to add these outstanding students to our ambassador program," Morisaki said. "They represent the best qualities of our students, and I am confident that they will be great ambassadors of both the College of Business Administration and the K-State brand as a whole."
