I developed excellent communication, leadership, and teamwork skills as a Lion Ambassador. Thanks to joining this organization, I have stronger passion for helping others across various situations in my daily life and realizing the impact it has on Penn State in the future.

What else do our Lion Ambassadors do? 

For a Lion Ambassador, being part of one club or organization is rare. Many of our Lion Ambassadors participate in at least two clubs throughout their Penn State career. We pride ourselves on our outside participation because it represents the continuing interest and diversity of our members that leads to better connections to prospective students. So, what are these extracurricular activities? 

  • Roc[k]tet 
  • THON
  • Chorale 
  • Band 
  • PSU Athletics 
  • Tutoring 
  • NSO 
  • Peer Mentoring 
  • Research 
  • And much more!

The Lion Ambassador community gave me relationships at PSU I know I can always come back to. It also gave me the chance to help incoming students be themselves on campus.
