Student ambassadors are just as vital to our office as our staff members. As representatives of the College, our group more than 10 ambassadors act as a first point-of-contact for prospective students, current students, and the surrounding community. Learn more about becoming a part of the CCD student ambassador program or about scheduling an ambassador for your next campus event.
