Here are some things participants of the ambassador program have said about the experience.
“Ambassadors is giving me an opportunity to practice and build on my leadership skills. As a totally online non-traditional student DCS Ambassadors has allowed me to meet other students on campus who I may not have gotten a chance to know, as well as giving me a semi-normal college experience that I many not have gotten by simply being an online student.” -Amanda Byrd
I love the ability to be able to reach out to fellow students and perspective students to talk with them and really tell them what the DCS degrees have to offer them..."
- Dorothy Droz
“I have been a member of the DCS Student Ambassadors since the inception of the group in the Fall of 2014. By participating in extra-curricular activities such as the Ambassadors, I have met remarkable people, been involved in fun activities, learned about the university and been able to represent UNO in an interesting and positive way.” -John Focht
“I am so proud to be a DCS Student Ambassador. When I was first chosen I had no idea what I would be getting into, I just knew I was proud of my school and wanted to show others how awesome it could be for them as well. Through the DCS Ambassadors I have been able to meet some really great people and make some connections I will utilize. I have had a strong staff support with Chandra, Amy, Ron, and the whole Division of Continuing Studies office. I love the ability to be able to reach out to fellow students and perspective students to talk with them and really tell them what the DCS degrees have to offer them through our volunteer efforts and information tables. I have grown so much by taking the leap and becoming the President of the DCS Ambassadors (which I have never held a position in office before), I truly enjoy the experience. My fellow officers have been great and many projects and events would not have been possible without my fellow ambassadors, We have so much fun! This will be an awesome experience and learning tool that I will never forget and I will cherish friendships that I have built. I am proud to have been chosen as a DCS Student Ambassador. I want to tell you it has brought fun and meaning to me.” - Dorothy Droz
