2018 Ambassador Candidates

It's time to get Fired Up for Homecoming 2018!!  Homecoming is an exciting time of the year for CMU and your RSO can become involved by nominating a deserving student for Homecoming Ambassador.  All candidates must be nominated by a registered student organization.  Each registered student organization is able to nominate one candidate.  The deadline to submit the homecoming ambassador application is Friday, April 13th, 2018.

All candidates must be a junior or senior during the Fall 2018 semester. Students who are on academic or disciplinary probation are ineligible.  All candidates run as "individuals" as there are no "tickets". Also, if a student was a member of the Top 5 in the previous year, they are not eligible for nomination this year.

The Process: 

  • After candidates are nominated by a RSO (Registered Student Organization), they are encouraged to fill out the ambassador application, due on April 13th
  • The top 10 candidates are notified on April 26th and the official announcement is made on April 27th at Maroonzie.
  • Prior to the start of the Fall semester, candidates are sent a presentation topic and are asked to interview in front of a panel of graduate students/faculty.
  • During homecoming week, the student body votes for their preferred candidate and the Homecoming Gold Ambassador is announced at the annual Rock Rally event.

Important Dates to Remember:

  • Applications due Friday, April 13th, 2018 by 8pm
  • All candidates will be notified on Thursday, April 26th, 2018
  • Official announcement will be made Friday, April 27th, 2018 at Maroonzie
