Orientation Ambassador Application

Thank you for your interest in being an Orientation Ambassador for the Bridge to Clemson program!

At this time, 2019-2020 Orientation Ambassador selection is closed. 

Bridge Orientation Ambassadors (OA's) are enthusiastic individuals who have successfully "crossed the bridge" to Clemson University and want to help future Bridge students get acclimated with the program during summer orientation. Ambassadors will interact with future Bridge students and their families by sharing their experiences at Tri-County Technical College, Clemson University, and the residential environment. Ambassadors facilitate various aspects of the orientation session. It is a fun and exciting role where you have the opportunity to make a positive impact on future Bridge students and their overall experience!
