Wichita State University's Student Ambassador Society (SAS), under the Office of Undergraduate Admissions, selected 33 incoming and current WSU students for membership beginning in fall 2013.
WSU faculty, staff, students and various Kansas high school and community college officials nominated more than 400 students to apply for SAS membership; only 65 candidates received interview opportunities.
"The membership selection process for Student Ambassador Society is highly competitive," said Bobby Gandu, SAS adviser and director of admissions at WSU. "We couldn't be more pleased with the quality of these new members and we look forward to seeing them help take the organization to new heights."
Through SAS, students can impact the future of the university, gain professional networking opportunities, meet fellow WSU students, develop leadership skills and enhance their overall college experience.
Each SAS member donates about 15-20 hours per semester in biweekly meetings and in helping and supporting the admissions office by working with prospective students and their parents, potential university donors and the greater Wichita community.
During the 2012-2013 academic year, student ambassadors donated thousands of hours and participated in more than 100 admissions activities.
