Some students may also qualify to become a Multicultural Recruitment Ambassador for the university. The Multicultural Recruitment Ambassadors are a sub-group of the student organized University Ambassadors. These students are dedicated to fostering diversity at West Chester University’s campus. In addition to giving daily tours to prospective students and participating in different admissions events, these students also volunteer their time contributing to multicultural focused events, such as the annual Check Us Out Day and Shadow Day for juniors in high school. Visit University Ambassadors for more information on this elite group of students!
