College Counseling Ambassadors
Our College Counseling Ambassador program gives juniors an opportunity to engage in a meaningful leadership position that will jumpstart their engagement with the college process, hone their communication and organizational skills, and provide opportunities to develop relationships with their college counselors, admissions representatives, and peers.
Their responsibilities include:
- serving as representatives of Rowland Hall to visiting college admissions representatives;
- greeting admissions representatives and providing them with a brief Upper School campus tour highlighting Rowland Hall's distinctive programs;
- attending meetings with admissions representatives to learn about their institutions;
- conducting primary-source research on colleges and universities with representatives visiting Rowland Hall; and
- participating in Rocky Mountain Association for College Admission Counseling's annual fair in Salt Lake City.
Students selected to serve for a second year as Lead Ambassadors are responsible for both training new ambassadors and coordinating the logistics for representative visits. Lead ambassadors also contribute to the visual representation and communication pieces of the process, which include contacting other ambassadors, college representatives, and fellow seniors.
