The Student Admissions Ambassadors (SAA) are a select (volunteer) group of 50 UNI students who serve as hosts to prospective students and campus visitors at the University of Northern Iowa. The primary duties of the group include:

  • Giving daily campus tours (10am & 2pm, Mon – Fri)

  • Staffing UNI Open House Days, Admitted Student Days, & Up Close Days

  • Giving special campus tours by request

In addition to their primary duties, SAA contributes to the UNI campus and the Cedar Falls community in a variety of other ways, including:

  • Service projects (e.g. Adopt-A-Highway, Catholic Worker House, Elementary School Carnivals, etc.)

  • Homecoming activities (Panther Pride Cry, Maucker Murals, campus clean-up, etc.)

  • Apple Polishers (an event in which our members recognize and thank a UNI faculty/staff person who has positively contributed to their time at UNI)

Whether it’s on a campus tour or a community service project, the Student Admissions Ambassadors are eager to share their Panther Pride and love for UNI. They put into action their motto of “Invite, Inform, Inspire.” Learn more about SAA:
