Become a Modern Languages Ambassador!
Modern Languages Ambassadors are a small group of enthusiastic majors or minors – like yourself- who represent their respective programs at on-campus and off-campus recruitment events. Some activities that ambassadors participated in this year included visiting the language classes to promote the major and minor, visiting a local high school to talk to students about university language study, and meeting with prospective students on campus to talk about our programs. Being an ambassador is a great way to meet other majors and minors, develop closer connections with alumni and faculty, and most of all share your excitement about language learning. If you are interested in becoming an ambassador next semester, please send your application to Dr. Sara Luly at email@example.com.
