Student Ambassadors to relate good news of CDU


By Louise Errington


CDU Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Primary) student Rebekah Krebs is looking forward to promoting the university and assisting her fellow students

The Charles Darwin University Student Ambassador program has been officially launched, bringing together a dedicated team of students who will make a significant contribution to the university community.

Third year Bachelor of Teaching and Learning (Primary) student Rebekah Krebs is one of nine CDU student leaders volunteering their time as part of the program.

“I had been studying externally from Queensland for the past two years and recently moved to Darwin to study internally,” Rebekah said.

“By joining the Student Ambassador Program I hope to have more contact with staff and other students, make new friends, help people find answers, and see parts of the campus I usually don’t get to.

“Participating in the program will also help me to develop personal, professional and leadership skills and to become more confident, and a better team player and communicator.”

Student Ambassadors promote CDU’s courses, study options and pathways to current and prospective students, their families, guests, and career advisers at events such as Orientation Day, Open Day, Dinner with CDU, Year 10 Discovery Day, high school visits and career expos.

They also will be on hand to share their personal experiences as students of CDU.

The volunteers come to the program from a broad range of disciplines, with undergraduate and postgraduate courses in education, commerce, environmental studies, accounting, nursing, law, and business administration represented in the group.
