The Warrior Elites hosted a gathering in the Student Union lobby on February 22, from 11 a.m. until 2 p.m.
The gathering was held to promote the organization and to mingle with prospective members.
Warrior Elite is a group of student ambassadors who are committed to creating programs and activities in order to instill a sense of pride in the ESU community.
The event brought a total of 17 new members building their total to 37 affiliates.
Event leader, Olivia Schneider Stated, “I originally expected to have around 15-20 people sign up, so I am very happy that 17 people were interested in Warrior Elite.”
The group of student ambassadors aims to foster a sense of pride and school spirit in the East Stroudsburg community.
Schneider also stated, “We are not that well known around campus, which is why we are having this gathering, to promote Warrior Elite.”
The overall objective of the Warrior Elite program is to raise money for ESU. The money they raise funds scholarships presented by the university.
“We strive to encourage positive interaction among students, alumni, and the guests of ESU” Schneider stated.
The Warrior Elites will be hosting a Campaign Kickoff for the senior class giving. For each attendant, the Elites will give $20.17 to the University.
“We are hoping to get 350 students to attend,” Schneider stated.
As presented on their website, the Warrior Elites aim to “positively represent the ESU student body, to act as ambassadors from the student body, alumni, and special guests of ESU, to assist at service oriented and special programs which support the efforts of the corresponding offices, and to develop a set of communication and leadership skills that are both transferable and applicable to life after ESU.”
Those interested in Warrior Elite can visit the website by following the Alumni tab on the ESU homepage. Prospective students must have a GPA of 2.5 or greater and simply have to fill out an application.
Members must participate in five university events such as game nights in dorms or dances, as well as five Elite events, such as tents at sporting events or fundraisers.
