Orientation Ambassadors

Orientation Ambassadors are students who are well-respected, academically successful leaders on campus. These students are chosen based upon their current and potential academic, interpersonal and leadership qualities. The team is selected each fall and participates in the subsequent summer orientation sessions.

Applications are LIVE to join the 2022 Orientation Ambassador Team.

Orientation is the process of assisting new students through the transition necessary for a successful college experience. Clemson University Orientation Ambassadors facilitate this process by providing new students, parents, and guests with an introduction to campus and its resources.
