Student Ambassador Applications Now Available!

Have you ever thought about becoming a student leader at Central Virginia Community College? Now is the time!

CVCC is currently accepting Student Ambassador applications for the 2015-2016 school year. Below are some requirements to become an ambassador:

·      -   Strong academic, interpersonal, and organizational skills

·       -  Desire to share their CVCC experience with others

·        - Hold at least a 2.5 GPA, with a minimum of 6 credit hours completed at CVCC by the end of the fall 2014 semester

·        - Be available for the following semesters: summer 2015, fall 2015, and spring 2016

Our current student ambassadors have excelled and represented the college well at various activities on and off campus. Some of the activities they participated in are open houses, high school visits, providing campus tours, assisted with directions the first week of class, and various other activities. One of the major perks of being a student ambassador is that you receive a $500 scholarship for the fall and a $500 scholarship for the spring as part of your commitment to working 30 hours a semester. You also will attend a Student Leadership conference, which will enhance your leadership skills as well as look good on transfer applications and/or job résumés.

If you are interested in applying please stop by the Counseling Office to pick up an application or email Kimberly French at to get an application.

The deadline to apply is March 27th!
