Please call us to arrange a tour of the Kentfield or Indian Valley Campus, and let us know your specific areas of interest. In under an hour, our friendly student ambassadors will introduce you to the campus and give you an insider’s view of our programs, support services, everyday happenings, and the beautiful surrounding area. Tours provide information and insights that you won’t find in a brochure; instead, you meet an actual student who can share their impressions and perspectives.
Become an Ambassador
The Student Ambassador Program is a critical part of the Outreach Department. This program is geared for currently enrolled full time students, carrying 12 units or more, who are enthusiastic about their experience at the College of Marin and who are willing to work with young people and others in the community to orient them to the College and its many opportunities.
Student Ambassadors will provide interested students with information and visit local schools and community events as well as support classified staff and continuing students, as needed, especially during peak registration periods.
Student Ambassadors will:
- Get students (especially under-represented, first generation college) excited about coming to College of Marin through workshops/presentations and by sharing first-hand experiences
- Assist students with Student Success steps including pre-orientation sessions, online application to the College, signing up for placement testing, Counseling appointment to develop a Student Educational Plan, Orientation, and enrolling in classes, as well as providing FAFSA support
- Give campus tours to showcase programs and support services
- Provide ongoing navigational support to continuing students at the window and through College activities, e.g., Road to Success, Welcome Week, Job Fair, Transfer Day, etc.
- Represent the College of Marin and promote diversity among our student population at local schools, community organizations and non-profits at college fairs, events, parent meetings, panels, workshops, and on campus
- Choose a personal project based on interests/skills that will add value to Outreach work and your personal educational goals, e.g., improving public transportation, developing a virtual tour for Outreach webpage, writing curriculum for K-8 presentations, etc.
