Program Description
Community Ambassadors

In an effort to assist students with their transition to off-campus living in the Syracuse University neighborhood, OCCS is proud to host the Community Ambassador Program. This program matches successful off-campus students with selected blocks in the University neighborhood. Selected students serve as ambassadors and role models to the residents of the streets they are living on. Community Ambassadors (CA) will provide a point of contact for student-residents on their assigned block, provide access to resources, and build community in order to ease the transition to off-campus living. CAs will be going door to door and e-mailing invitations to community events and timely information throughout the year.

Community to me is bringing a group of people together that may not know each other, and learning to rely on them. They're the friends you never know you needed.
