2017-2018 Bridge to Clemson Orientation Ambassador Selection
Thank you for your interest in being an Orientation Ambassador for the Bridge to Clemson Program!
Bridge Orientation Ambassadors (OA's) are enthusiastic individuals who have successfully crossed the bridge to Clemson and want to help future Bridge students get acclimated with the program during summer orientation. Ambassadors will interact with future Bridge students and their families by sharing their experiences at Tri-County Technical College, Clemson University, and the residential environment and will facilitate various aspects of the orientation session. It is a fun and exciting role where you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on future Bridge students and their overall experience.
Ambassadors must be current Clemson students that have successfully crossed the bridge or current Bridge students that are on track to complete the Bridge academic requirements by the end of the May 2016 term. Applicants must have a cumulative 2.5 GPA or higher and be in good conduct standing. Academic and conduct records will be reviewed to ensure these requirements are successfully met.
