When the Assistant Director of Alumni Engagement, Brooke Donovan, was hired last July, one of her duties was to form a group of select undergraduate student leaders who would serve as ambassadors to East Stroudsburg University.
Previously under control of Student Affairs, the student ambassador program was revived when Dovovan recruited students in September 2011.
The student ambassadors now consist of about ten students who are eager to revamp the organization. They were soon renamed The Warrior Elite to signify their “elite” position for the remainder of 2011, the ambassadors served as ushers at several VIP campus events, such as the Alumni Awards Banquet, President Dillman’s Holiday Dinner, Winter Commencement, scholarship luncheons, and homecoming.
In early 2012, the Warrior Elite wanted to build up its newly restored organization. Because of some members graduating and having internships, the group was left with four faithful members. The four did not want to be discouraged, so they recruited new members.
On March 2nd and 3rd, the Warrior Elite attended the CASE ASAP conference at Indiana University of Pennsylvania, learning several techniques to help the advancement of their organization.
All members came back to ESU with a new enthusiasm for their ambassador program and have been working hard each week to reach their goals of the organization.
Currently, the Warrior Elite has nearly a dozen members and is seeking new members who hold as much school pride as they do.
Not only is the Warrior Elite continuing to grow, but it is also looking to become an official campus organization in Fall 2012 since it is currently under control of the ESU Foundation.
This will allow the organization to, not only serve at VIP campus events, but also, be more actively involved on campus and become a well-known organization.
