Graduate Student Ambassador Program

Are you looking for additional ways to get involved in graduate education on campus? Do you have experience in student services like Residence Life, Orientation or Admissions?

Consider becoming a Graduate Student Ambassador to make the most of your graduate experience and help others!

A Graduate Student Ambassador (GSA) is a distinguished role that allows you to interact more with the Dean and staff of Graduate Studies while participating in a variety of events on and off campus.

Ambassadors help with open houses, graduate fairs and similar recruitment events during the academic year.

The Dean’s office also forms focus groups of ambassadors so that the Dean and staff can keep current with what Villanova graduate students want and need.

And of course, we throw some events just for our Ambassadors as well!

All graduate students in the College of Liberal Arts and Sciences are eligible to apply!

Graduate Student Ambassadors are:

  • Outgoing, responsible and motivated
  • Helpful and willing to work as a creative team
  • Interested in making the most of their Villanova experience while building their resume
  • Eager for opportunities to interact with other graduate students from many different departments
  • Committed to strengthening the graduate student community

Our Graduate Student Ambassadors volunteer to assist with:

  • New Graduate Student Orientations (fall and spring)
  • Open House (fall and spring)
  • Admitted Student Day (spring)
  • Student tours (as needed)
  • Other student focused events

We ask that each Graduate Student Ambassador volunteer to work at least one of our admissions events per academic year. However, you can volunteer for as many as you'd like!

The time commitment for each event is 2-4 hours. Some events are on weeknights, while others may be held on a Saturday.

The 2020-2021 Graduate Student Ambassador Application is below.
