  • Serving as the voice of our students in panels at events such as LEADTexas, Honors Colloquium, Advisory Council, etc.
  • Greeting and escorting VIP guests to scheduled appointments.
  • Leading tours of the college or individual departments for visiting donors, prospective donors, high school groups, prospective students, on a one-off basis as requested.
  • Participating in recruitment events and activities such as calling projects, on-campus events, or off-campus admissions events across Texas.
  • Promoting Moody College brand and events via social media, peer networking, etc.
  • Participating in or act as a liaison to the student body to help recruit students for photo shoots, videos, and focus groups
