Music Ambassadors is an organization of undergraduate music majors engaged in service activities in support of the College of Musical Arts at Bowling Green State University. Members of Music Ambassadors are available during audition programs and University recruitment events and serve as leaders, mentors and as a valuable resource for questions from prospective student and parents. They are also available during summer Orientation/Registration and Welcome Week activities in the fall.
In support of its motto of Vision, Guidance and Leadership, the Music Ambassadors exemplify these areas in its volunteer role for the college by providing a unique understanding of the many positive attributes that the college has to offer music students. During recruitment events, the ambassadors lead discussions about college life as music majors, answer questions and offer tips for success to students and parents.
Music Ambassadors are exemplary music students showing strength in all areas of academics, music performance, leadership and communication skills. The organization has served as a model to other departments/colleges at BGSU in its role of working directly with prospective students and their families when visiting campus. The organization was awarded a Dean’s Special Service Award in 2008 in appreciation for their service to the college.
The Music Ambassadors are a tremendous asset to the college and we hope you will enjoy the ambassadors’ messages throughout the Web site. We look forward to meeting you and to having you on campus in the near future!
Why be a Music Ambassador?
“I remember my audition day here as a senior in high school. The music ambassadors created a calming and positive atmosphere for me, making the whole audition process more comfortable. I wanted to provide the same service to other prospective students. It’s also another great organization to get to know more about your fellow colleagues.”
“Music Ambassadors are an integral part of admissions into the CMA. I am very proud to be a student at BGSU and so I wanted to help introduce students to what we have to offer here.”
“The Music Ambassadors made my visits to BG much easier, less stressful and more informative as a senior. Even when I was in high school, I thought being a Music Ambassador looked like fun. My freshman year, I received an email and was interested in getting involved so I joined.”
“First and foremost, I wanted to join Music Ambassadors because of my college audition experience. They were very nice to many parents and me, and gave us great impression of BGSU and the College of Musical Arts. Music Ambassadors were one of the major reasons I decided to come to BGSU. Secondly, I wasn’t a good public speaker when I first came here as a freshman. I thought it would be a good training to join Music Ambassadors.”
