Current students act as a guiding source for potential Texas State students during campus tours. Around 40 students make up the Texas State volunteer organization known as the University Ambassadors. The organization is backed by the Office of Undergraduate Admissions and the Alumni Association. The purpose of the University Ambassadors is to recruit and encourage new students to come to Texas State. The organization sets out on achieving its goal by giving campus tours to prospective students, attending gold book sessions and being in attendance for the Texas State Bobcat open house days.
University Ambassadors President, Amy Goslin said the job of working campus events is a rewarding one. Goslin says that she gets to see possible future students and use her past experiences to give them information and answers.
“It’s a job that never ends. Anytime that we’re wearing our polo or walking through the campus it’s our job to represent Texas State in the best possible way. We call ourselves the forty faces of Texas State. Any time that we’re at an event we try to give the best information possible. We put it in our personal perspective, our personal experience and hope that they will come to Texas State.”

Goslin said that committed students who have a love for Texas State can apply to become a University Ambassador. The requirements are a minimum 2.5 GPA and be in good academic standing at Texas State. Applications are available by emailing the University Ambassador executive board.
