Seidman Ambassador Program
Our mission is to share the Seidman experience with prospective students and the greater campus community. We aim to promote the values of the Seidman College of Business while addressing any questions or concerns. Seidman Ambassadors are current students, eager to help future GVSU Lakers find their fit. They share tips and insights to prospective students on how to be successful at Grand Valley State University and Seidman. They have a passion for both their studies and supporting fellow students.
Fall 2020 Update
For the safety and well-being of all our students, faculty, staff and campus community members in-person tours of the Seidman College of Business are currently suspended for the Fall 2020 semester (August - December). Please refer to the Admissions Department for alternatives to tour the GV campuses.
If you are a current Seidman student and interested in applying to be a Seidman Ambassador, we are still accepting applications! Seidman Ambassadors are crucial student leaders that support the college in various ways so we always welcome new applicants. If you have any questions, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to become an ambassador
Students interested in serving as a Seidman Ambassador must first complete an online application. Applications are then reviewed by our staff and students will be individually contacted via email to notify them of their decisions. Students who are selected to serve as ambassadors will be required to attend one (1) training session (approximately 2 hours in duration). Dates will be provided to selected applicants.
