Be a Panther Ambassador

And assist the Office of Admissions in recruiting the newest Panthers to UNI.

Panther Ambassadors are a select group of volunteer UNI students who share their experiences on everything from academics to student life and provide a personal outlook on the University. Ambassadors assist in the recruitment of diverse classes of future UNI students that represent all academic, socioeconomic, cultural, ethnic, gender, sexuality, abilities and geographic backgrounds. 

Visiting a college campus is an important part of the college search process, and current students play a major role in helping prospective students leave campus with a better sense of who we are and if we might just be the place for them.
