Become an Ambassador

Our graduate student ambassadors play an important role in the admission process by helping prospective students learn what it's like to be a College of Communication student at DePaul. Ambassadors work closely with the Office of Graduate Admission to help with information sessions and answer questions for prospective students.

Becoming a student ambassador is a great way to build your resume and your network, meet new people and develop your leadership skills. Learn more and apply today!
