Lion Ambassadors invite students to apply

October 19, 2018

UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. — The Penn State Lion Ambassadors welcome students to learn more about the organization and consider becoming a member. Information sessions will be hosted on Monday, Oct. 22, and Wednesday, Nov. 14, in addition to an open house on Tuesday, Nov. 27. 

Every year, these recruitment events are held to engage the community in a conversation about who Lion Ambassadors are and what the organization does as a whole. As such, the information sessions hone in on explaining the Lion Ambassadors’ various connections with the Alumni Association, admissions, and the rest of Penn State’s campus.

Through activities, presentations and a smattering of free food, students who attend these sessions will learn about the exact expectations of members as well as the purpose of the group, summarized by four pillars: service, tradition, excellence and pride. Items that will be emphasized include Lion Ambassadors’ touring experiences, community-wide event planning, S-Zone creation, and overall sense of community founded by mutual pride in the University.

In addition to these learning activities, the information sessions will be an opportunity for students to network with current Lion Ambassadors. These spaces are a way to encourage conversation and answer questions about the recruitment process. With the application being released in October, the sessions provide an opportunity for interested individuals to discover the vast benefits of being in Lion Ambassadors and provide resources for anyone with further questions.
