Texas A&M International University students who are interested in becoming members of the TAMIU Student Ambassadors or who wish to learn more about the student service organization are invited to attend a New Ambassador Orientation Sunday, August 4 from 2:00 - 4:00 p.m. in Bullock Hall room 101.

Interested students should register to attend the event by calling the University's Office of Enrollment Management at 326-2272.

To be eligible to join the TAMIU Student Ambassadors, students must have at least a 2.5 grade point average. Incoming freshmen must have graduated in the top 20% of their class to be eligible.

The organization currently has 22 TAMIU Student Ambassadors but will expand membership to 35 for the upcoming school year.

Student Ambassadors serve as a liaison between students and administrators, provide campus tours to visitors, accompany representatives of TAMIU at some recruitment events, participate in new student orientation, and act as hosts for various campus functions.

The Student Ambassadors participated in every major event the University sponsored during its first year as a four-year institution, including Student Orientation, Opening Day Ceremony, First Annual Dusty Golf Tournament, 25th Anniversary Celebration, and Commencement.

The University recently hosted a reception for the Ambassadors in appreciation of the service the organization has provided to TAMIU.

The Student Ambassadors are advised by Ricardo Ray Ortegon, Associate Director of the University's Office of Enrollment Management and School Relations. Ortegon founded the student service organization last year.
