admissions ambassadors 

USC Aiken Admissions Ambassadors serve as the face of our institution and hosts for the Office of Admissions. As such, they assist the staff in recruiting students to UofSC Aiken. Their most visible role is serving as tour guides for prospective students and their families who visit campus.

The Ambassador program has been designed to create a prestigious organization whose membership is carefully selected and reflects the high caliber and academic quality of the UofSC Aiken community. Leadership and communication skills, along with an outgoing personality and the ability to share enthusiasm about UofSC Aiken with others are essential. Ambassadors must also be willing to promote and support the University of South Carolina Aiken in all phases of campus life.

Thank you for contacting the Office of Admissions.

One of our staff members will respond to you as soon as possible during the regular business day hours.
