Lion Ambassadors: Do You Have What It Takes?

Lion Ambassadors giving a lantern tour. This could be you!

Do you dream about walking backwards? Do you talk to your friends about how Schwab Auditorium is haunted and other Penn State trivia? Do you pray to the Gods of Blue and White to end up in the “S” Zone every Saturday? If you are Penn State Proud and think you have what it takes to be a part of one of the oldest organizations on campus, you need to check out recruitment sessions and apply to be a Lion Ambassador.

“In my mind, being a Lion Ambassador is about joining together with students from all different backgrounds who all share one common value – an undying love for Penn State,” said Kaitlin Seasoltz, the Lion Ambassador Recruitment Chair. “We try our best to maintain University traditions for past, current and future students at all levels around campus.”

Applications are already live and are available to any sophomore or junior with a GPA of 2.5 or higher. Anyone interested can attend an upcoming recruitment information session on either November 10 at 8:30 p.m. in 110 Wartik or December 1 at 7 p.m. at the Hintz Family Alumni Center.
“There are no limitations in terms of how many students we take into our new class – we really encourage everyone who feels they embody what it means to be a true Penn Stater to apply,” Seasoltz said.
Applications are due online by Friday, December 10 at 5:00 p.m. Questions can be directed to the Lion Ambassador office at (814) 863-3752 or emailed to [email protected].

Healthier than ice cream with an infinite number of toppings, the combination is drive girls in droves downtown to get their fix. The addition of two new businesses has led to a extreme price war, with owners vying to have not only the best prices but each claiming their flavors are the best. Since we know our readers don’t have the time to try them all and decide for themselves, we did it for you and have decided which really hits the spot.
