The Student Ambassador program consists of students knowledgeable in the science programs offered at York University. They attend recruitment events to help educate prospective students on the benefits of attending York. Ambassadors attend the Ontario University Fair, high school parent nights, York University’s Fall Campus Day and Spring Open House and hold March Break Tours during high school March Break. They help provide parents and students with answers to their pressing questions and give them a student’s perspective of university life.
- Create an open environment that facilitates communication between prospective students and York University Science programs
- Provide information regarding the application process, various academic programs, and support services available at Bethune College and York University
- Share personal York student experience with prospective students and advocate the benefits of attending York University
