Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors are an on-campus organization that promotes responsibility, develops professional skills, and works to establish leadership qualities in students. These students give campus tours and are the “first face” of Cowley to prospective students. They work closely with Admissions and assist with events on campus throughout the year. This group is hand selected and only upcoming sophomores are eligible.

2023-2024

Cowley Ambassadors are dedicated to helping future students. They conduct campus tours and participate in campus events. Cowley College Ambassadors are a group of students chosen each year based on grades, leadership, and citizenship. These students work in the admissions office and help promote Cowley College in various activities.
