Student Ambassador

The Wright School of Business Student Ambassadors are an elite group of students who represent the Wright School of Business and serve as spokespeople and tour guides for the renovated building. The WSOB faculty identified and recommended these premier students in each of the majors. WSOB ambassadors must meet criteria including a GPA of 3.0 or higher,  be well spoken, and a representative of our student population. Each of the applicants was personally interviewed by our Assistant Dean. Student Ambassadors do not receive credit other than volunteer hours via Roadrunner Serve. Students receive white dress shirts with logo and the title of Student Ambassador to wear during all events or tours.  Student Ambassadors have participated in the Gignilliat Hall ribbon cutting event, giving tours to the Wright School of Business’ Business Advisory Council, hosting a local FBLA and CTAE group from Dalton High School, and greeting numerous state representatives and government delegations.
