The Kent State University Geauga and Regional Academic Center Student Ambassadors, launched in Fall 2019, foster pride in the campus community at both locations and provide students with real life leadership experience while assisting with admissions and recruitment activities. This scholarship-based program includes a mix of theory-based leadership practice as well as hands on learning.
