Student Ambassadors serve the Reynolds community in a number of ways. The primary duty of Student Ambassadors is serving our new students at all summer SOAR (Student Orientation and Registration) sessions at the Downtown, Parham Road, and Goochland campuses, where they welcome new students to Reynolds, help students create a class schedule, conduct campus tours and assist faculty and staff with the overall program. Ambassadors also assist with the information and welcome tables at the beginning of each semester, host campus-wide events at the direction of the President's Office, and help with college open house events.
We have hired ambassadors for the summer of 2020. Please check back in the fall when we plan to recruit more student ambassadors.
