EMU Royal Ambassadors & Executive Royal Ambassadors are passionate about EMU, articulate, fun, and dedicated to recruiting the best and brightest Royals. The Undergraduate Admissions Office looks for students who bring a variety of EMU experiences, both on and off campus. Royal Ambassadors are eager to represent the campus community to past, present, and future students and their families by sharing their love and knowledge of EMU.

EMU Royal Ambassadors differ from Executive Ambassadors:
Royal Ambassadors vary in responsibilities, serving as hosts, student panelists, desk attendants, building/lab
tour guides, and more. Hosting is a paid (non work-study) position and most other
tasks are volunteer positions within Undergraduate Admissions.
Executive Royal Ambassadors primarily give campus tours to prospective students and guests. They are paid student employees (non work-study) of Undergraduate Admissions.
A student can be both a Royal Ambassador and an Executive member. Executive members must be a Royal Ambassador for at least a semester to qualify for the position.
