Become a CSU Brand Ambassador
Brand Ambassadors are current students who are leaders in our community, who convey a wealth of knowledge about CSU’s on-campus community, and who have a passion for social media. Brand ambassadors are the “online tour guides” for the university and fill a crucial institutional need. As more prospective students are visiting CSU’s online profiles to develop an idea of campus life, we must ensure that the online content is accurate and the student voice is heard. The audience for the produced content reaches farther than prospective students, it includes current students, faculty/staff, alumni, recruiters and friends of Charleston Southern. The Brand Ambassadors will provide key insights into student life at CSU!
All Brand Ambassadors must be active advocates for the institution through both personal and university-based accounts. Ambassadors must act professionally, keeping in mind that they represent the university (i.e. appropriate language, pictures, videos, etc.). Ambassadors are required to abide by CSU Social Media policies. We reserve the rights to replace any students who are not able to comply.
