Alumni Admissions Ambassador Training

Friday, June 1 to Sunday, June 3, 2018

Be Our Guest
Come back to campus to learn more about Lesley University’s Alumni Admissions Ambassador Program!  We hope you are able to join us for a weekend of discussion and training at our 5th Annual Alumni Admissions Ambassador Training.

Admissions Ambassador Training
Meet Liana and Shirley, who administer the Ambassador Program, and other Alumni Admissions Ambassadors.  You will see what is new on campus, from university initiatives to academic programs.  We will present opportunities for you to spread the word about Lesley and share your college experiences with our prospective students.

Please note that as a participant in the Alumni Admissions Ambassador Training we will cover the cost of all meals during Alumni Weekend, as well as the cost of staying overnight on campus. While we certainly hope that you’ll be able to join us for the whole weekend, the most important training sessions for Alumni Admissions Ambassadors occur on Saturday.
