As a BSW Ambassador, you will gain valuable experience while giving back to the School of Social Work. BSW Ambassadors represent the school by assisting in a variety of events, largely related to recruitment and retention. In addition to leading tours of Little Hall, ambassadors assist with events such as Bama Bound (freshman and transfer orientation), University Days, Capstone Scholars Day, Homecoming events, Career Days and colloquia hosted by the School. Up to 15 ambassadors are selected through a competitive application and interview process. Details regarding eligibility requirements can be found below.
