Show your UD spirit as a Blue Hen Ambassador
The Office of Undergraduate Admissions is looking for enthusiastic students to join the Blue Hen Ambassador (BHA) program. BHAs must have positive attitudes, strong public speaking and customer service skills.
In addition to giving weekly tours to prospective and admitted students, BHAs also participate in a variety of admissions events and provide general office support.
The BHA program is open to students in good academic standing who are currently in their first, second or third year. We accept students of all majors and look for students from diverse backgrounds and academic interests, to ensure that tours give a full picture of life at UD.
Being a part of the program allows students with different career interests to develop their soft skills, such as public speaking, time management and teamwork.
Megan Masterson, a senior international relations major, remembers her first tour of campus and how it encouraged her to come to UD and become a BHA herself.
“It’s a way to give back to a university that’s given me so much over the past few years,” Masterson said. “It’s filled with great people and good friends.”
Applicants are asked to share a two-minute video about their UD story and why they would make a great Blue Hen Ambassador. Those interested in the program must be full-time students enrolled for the spring 2018 semester and expecting to return for the 2018-2019 academic year.
To apply for the spring 2018 semester visit: https://apply.udel.edu/register/BHAspringapp. The deadline to submit is Friday, Jan. 5 by 4 p.m. All questions about the BHA program can be directed to Jaclyn Tatnall at firstname.lastname@example.org.
