Events Descriptions
Online Student Profile & Blog A select group of Ambassadors will be chosen to be profiled on the Admissions website to provide prospective students with a personal view of USD. Ambassadors will be required to provide weekly updates of their college experience.
Online Chats At various dates thoughout the year, the Admissions Office hosts online chat sessions for prospective students to communicate with current USD students about campus life, residence halls, majors, and the admissions process. Chat volunteers enjoy a pizza dinner and then participate in the two-hour chat from 7-9pm.
Fall Open House In November, we will be hosting our Fall Open House where prospective students and their families will be on campus to get acquainted with the facilities and academic programs. Ambassadors will participate as greeters, tour guides, panelists, and lunch minglers.
College Fairs Ambassadors represent USD thoughout the year at many college fairs held at high schools, convention centers, and community colleges in the San Diego area. Ambassadors accompany an admission counselor to the fair and assist with setting up displays, handing out recruitment material, and interacting with hundreds of prospective students about the campus.
Student Panels Counselors from the Admissions Office make presentations to large groups of prospective students often using student panels. The purpose of a student panel is to present the audience with a diverse cross-section of the USD student body and allow them to ask our Student Ambassadors questions about student life and academics in an open forum.
Home for the Holidays During Winter Break, Ambassadors are encouraged to share their USD experience with current students at their alma mater. A visit to your old high school is set up with the counseling office, and we provide our students with the materials and training to talk to students interested in attending USD.
Day Visit Hosting Admitted prospective students in the spring have the opportunity to visit the campus for a few hours to shadow a current student. Ambassadors act as their host and take them to class, lunch, and also spend time talking with them about USD.
Overnight Visit Hosting As one of the most popular Ambassador events, admitted students in the Spring have the opportunity to visit USD and spend the night in the residence halls with a current student. Our students serve as their host and take the prospective student to classes, dining halls, and show them everything USD has to offer!
College Visiting Day In the Spring, the Admissions Office invites all admitted students and their families to visit campus for a large open house event. The event requires our student volunteers to welcome our guests, lead tours, sit on student panels, and help these admitted students see themselves on campus as future Toreros!
Admitted Student Congratulatory Phoning In the Spring, Student Ambassadors spend a few hours phoning admitted students around the country to congratulate them on their acceptance to USD and answer any questions they might have about the campus. Often our Ambassadors are able to talk to students about living in the residence halls, what classes are like, and how the food tastes.
Tour Guides

A USD Tour Guide is a part-time, compensated position that requires additional interviews and training if selected. Tour guides lead USD's daily tours for prospective students and their families throughout the year. Tours are one of the most influential factors on why students choose USD as their home!

(There are a very limited number of new student tour guide positions available)

Executive Board The Executive Board (E-Board) is the student-comprised governing body of the Ambassadors Club. There is a President, VP of Tours - Recruitment, VP of Tours - Training, VP of Communication, VP of Marketing, and Inter-Club Council Chair. Elections are held in April of the Spring semester and provide great leadership opportunities for these student leaders!
