Apply to Become a Student Ambassador!

Christina Kopp – April 2, 2014

This is a reminder that applications for the student ambassador program are due on Friday, April 4.

As a student ambassador, you will have the opportunity to host students from around the world and introduce them to Deerfield life. 
 
Your first opportunity to participate comes in mid-April. From April 13 to April 26, we will be welcoming four students from Brazil’s Escola Sesc de Ensino Médio, a boarding high school that brings together students from all walks of Brazilian life.  Like you, these students are passionate about sports, theater, reading, science, the arts — and most of all, they are passionate about expanding their horizons. 
 
As a Deerfield Student Ambassador, you would
– have a deep interest in learning about another culture, as well as sharing your own cultural experiences
– be willing to host a student of the same gender in your dorm room or home (for day students) from April 13 to April 26
– participate in one or two evening or weekend cultural activities, such as going to a movie, eating at a favorite restaurant, or visiting a cultural landmark or museum in the area
 
Although you will be welcoming students to life in America, you do not have to be an American to share your experiences here at Deerfield!
