OCCS Seeks 2011-12 Community Ambassadors
In an effort to assist students with their transition to off campus living in the Syracuse University neighborhood, the Office of Off-Campus and Commuter Services (OCCS)
has created the Community Ambassador Program. This program will match successful off-campus students with selected blocks in the University neighborhood. Selected students will serve as ambassadors and role models to the residents of the street they are living on.
Community Ambassadors (CA) will provide a point of contact for student-residents on their assigned block, provide access to resources and build community in order to ease the transition to off-campus living. We hope this program will increase the overall achievement and satisfaction of students living in the university neighborhood, and
will provide a leadership opportunity for returning off-campus students.
Streets participating in the Community Ambassador Program:
• Ackerman Avenue
• Clarendon Street
• Euclid Avenue
• Lancaster Avenue
• Livingston Avenue
• Ostrom Avenue
• Maryland Avenue
• Redfield Place
• Sumner Avenue
• Park Point Syracuse
Requirements for students applying to be a Community Ambassador:
1. Sophomore standing by Fall 2011.
2. Minimum cumulative GPA of at least 2.50.
3. No current academic or non-academic sanctions.
4. Must live on one of the selected areas during the 2011-2012
5. Willingness to commit to participation for the entire 2011-2012
This is a PAID leadership opportunity. Applications are due March 25.
