New Student Programs & Family Outreach is seeking to employ qualified, currently enrolled undergraduate students who identify as transfer students.  Applicants need to be enthusiastic, hard-working and committed to assisting welcome new transfer students and their family during the summer Transfer START program and Welcome Week.  Transfer START is the summer advising and registration program for incoming students and their families.  Transfer Ambassadors will take away new skills and experiences that will open doors and aid them in future careers and opportunities. Transfer Ambassadors enjoy this job because it still allows them time to take classes during the summertime while working to welcome new transfer students.
