Lindenwood University is launching a new student ambassador program. The program was created by student-athletes RaShad May (junior) and Todd Starks (sophomore), along with their professor, Katie Davis, in conjunction with the Lindenwood University-Belleville Admissions Office. Student tours will begin immediately on a part-time basis with a full-time ambassador staff providing tours by this fall.
Those interested in touring the campus with a student ambassador can stop by the location at 2600 West Main Street or call ahead at 618-239-6000. Tours will be available Monday-Friday from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m.
“A group of hand-selected students will be in charge of taking prospective students on a fun and informative tour of our growing campus,” said May. “As a Lindenwood Belleville student, I believe this school has a lot to offer undergraduate and graduate students. Student-led tours will help our school grow and reach its full potential.”
May and Starks spent an intersession semester building the ambassador program from the ground up. They used Lindenwood’s St. Charles campus as a template and added their own inventive skills to create a dynamic touring program.
May and Starks are basketball players at Lindenwood Belleville, and this is their first year attending the university. By creating the student ambassador program, May and Starks demonstrate the opportunity that all students at Lindenwood Belleville have to help build the framework of their campus and create lasting programs and traditions for future generations of students.
