NDSCS Ambassadors

Become an NDSCS Ambassador Today!

With the support of the Alumni/Foundation, NDSCS is looking for a group of students who are friendly, outgoing, dedicated and who represent various academic areas of NDSCS to serve as NDSCS Ambassadors.

NDSCS Ambassadors will help foster a caring community for our students, faculty and staff while serving as a resource and familiar contact for visitors who come to campus for both NDSCS sponsored and non-NDSCS sponsored events.

If you're ready to...

  • Give back to the NDSCS and Wahpeton communities,
  • Gain a deeper understanding of the history of NDSCS and the higher education structure, and
  • Make some extra money by “working” 4-6 hours a month

...then apply today!
