Campus Ambassador Mission Statement
The University of Wisconsin Parkside Campus Ambassador Program was founded in 1998 as an undergraduate paraprofessional student leadership program. Campus ambassadors are a prestigious and dynamic team of student leaders who are "the face" of UW-Parkside, dedicated to serving the Office of Admissions and New Student Services as well as the greater UW-Parkside community. With enthusiasm and a commitment to excellence, we represent and promote the university to prospective students, families, guests and the community. Our priority is to maintain the highest level of service as we create positive and lasting first impressions.
We want everyone to Be a Ranger.

Favorite thing about Parkside: My favorite part about Parkside would have to be the many events that take place in the Den and at Brickstone.
