Student Ambassadors

What do student ambassadors do?

Your duties as a student ambassador will vary, but can include:

  • Conducting tours of Franklin Hall and talking to prospective students and their families about The Media School
  • Staffing events, such as our Distinguished Alumni Awards, Speaker Series and Direct Admit Day
  • Representing The Media School at high school media conventions

Bonus: Build your network in Chicago

Each year, our ambassadors take a road trip to Chicago, where they meet our alumni and shadow them on their jobs.

You’ll visit media organizations such as the Chicago Tribune, WGN, the Associated Press, the Big Ten Network, Hill+Knowlton and Edelman. You'll also network with Chicago-area alumni working in the media industry.

How do I apply?

Applications are available during the second half of spring semester and will be announced in The Buzz newsletter.
