Family Ambassadors 2018

Family Ambassador Program

The Family Ambassadors are a group of 30 students... Northwestern who have had a range of experiences and cannot wait to share them all with the family members for our newest Wildcats. Family Ambassadors assist with the execution of Parent and Family Orientation during Wildcat Welcome and will interact with family members throughout the program to ensure all questions are answered and needs are met. They also assist family members and help carry out programming during Family Weekend each fall.

We also have the privilege of having two Family Coordinators who work with our office. The Family Coordinators are student leaders dedicated to selecting, training and mentoring the Family Ambassadors as well as guiding parents and families through Parent and Family Orientation and Family Weekend.
