I am currently working on an Associates of Arts Degree and then plan on transferring. I love helping out and giving back to my community, and as CSN’s new ambassador I’m happy to do exactly that! When I was a first time college student, I remember how terrifying it was to tackle all the pressure and responsibility of the enrollment process and I’d love to be able to make sure that no student goes into a life changing experience like college, without any guidance. I’m here to help!
Hello! My name is Israel Cervantes. I am a current sophomore here at CSN, where I am working towards my Associate of Business degree. Eventually, I plan to transfer to obtain a bachelor's. I am grateful to be a Student Ambassador this year as I get the opportunity to help students, which I am very passionate about. If you happen to see me around, feel free to say hi!”

The Student Ambassador Program showcases some of the best students that choose to give back to the CSN community by representing the college and providing great guidance and customer service to students. They are the student leaders and future leaders in our community.
What do Student Ambassadors do?
Student Ambassadors work in conjunction with the Department of Recruitment & College Connections in assisting students in the admissions process. They represent the College of Southern Nevada at local area high school events, business & industry events in the greater Las Vegas metro area, and other areas of educational outreach. On campus, Ambassadors serve as tour guides and assist with various events that promote CSN as the college of first choice.
Benefits of Becoming a Student Ambassador
In addition to developing leadership, mentoring, and public speaking skills, Student Ambassadors attain valuable work experience, enjoy a more fulfilling college life, and earn above-average hourly wages. Most rewarding of all, Student Ambassadors have an impact on the ability of the students they serve to complete their degrees.
Qualifications to Become a Student Ambassador
Student Ambassador Program applicants must be at least on their second term of enrollment at CSN, registered for a minimum of 12 credit hours in fall and spring, have earned a 3.5 cumulative grade point average or higher with 12 earned credit hours, and possess a valid NV driver's license. Preferred qualifications include ability to speak a second language (e.g., Spanish) and demonstrated previous public speaking experience.
Applications are accepted twice a year, after fall grades and spring grades have posted. The due date is dynamic and will change with the academic calendar. Once a Student Ambassador position(s) become available via CSN's job posting webpage, students are asked to submit a cover letter, resume, and unofficial transcript.
Applicants will go through two sets of interviews (one group and one individual). Only applicants selected for a second interview will submit two signed letters of recommendation, a completed My Degree Plan that indicates the applicant's academic path from now through graduation, and next semester's schedule.
