Help others discover the Perks of Berks
Penn State's Lion Ambassadors, managed by the Admissions Office, are student volunteers who serve as representatives for the University. As a recognized student organization, the Lion Ambassadors offer students opportunities for extracurricular growth, professional development, and to cultivate their leadership skills.
At Penn State Berks, the purpose of the Lion Ambassadors is to promote the betterment of the college through student involvement in various recruitment and development activities. These ambassadors are our official student public relations group, representing Penn State Berks in the community and in college outreach programs.
Throughout the year, Lion Ambassadors give scheduled tours to prospective students and their families. Ocassionaly tours are with larger groups, e.g., open houses.
Open House Programs
Lion Ambassadors serve as hosts, greeting people, participating formally in the program, and giving tours on campus.
Lion Ambassadors help with development (fundraising) and alumni events when needed, e.g., Penn State ice cream sales, capital campaign activities, and advisory board functions.
Helping our new first-year students feel welcome, Lion Ambassadors arrive early to help them move into the residence halls, and participate in various activities during the orientation period.
