Student Ambassador Program
Mid-State's Student Ambassador Program is made up of a group of highly regarded students on campus who demonstrate many excellent qualities, including a strong desire to positively represent the College. Student ambassadors share their positive experiences with other students, staff, prospective students, community members, and business partners through involvement with various departments throughout the year.
The Ambassador Program gives students the opportunity to:
- Gain incredible leadership opportunities.
- Work collaboratively with other students and staff.
- Be eligible to represent Mid-State at the Wisconsin Technical College System (WTCS) State Ambassador Conference in Madison.
Student ambassadors will receive $10 per hour up to 50 hours per semester by participating in events and activities they choose.
Students can fill out the application, including two employee references, or they can be nominated by any Mid-State staff member. Selection includes an interview and consideration of qualities that go beyond good grades, such as community involvement, leadership in and out of the classroom, and a true commitment to higher education in the Wisconsin Technical College System.
