Take UCSC Home 2012

For information about Take UCSC Home 2012, see this article.

Are you headed home for spring break? Do you want to learn valuable job skills, connect with your former school and share your positive UC Santa Cruz experiences? 

During spring break 2011, March 21 – 25, the Office of Admissions is inviting students to return to their former schools and communities as ambassadors to share their UCSC experiences and connect with newly admitted students.

If you, or your group of friends, are interested in participating, please apply or update your information at admissions.ucsc.edu/volunteers by February 7, 2011. If selected, Student Ambassadors would need to attend a mandatory training session on Saturday, February 12, 11 a.m. – 2 p.m.

If you are a student who has previously participated in Taking UCSC Home and would like to join us again this spring, please log into your volunteer profile using your UCSC e-mail address and the year you will graduate, and click the "Re-Apply for Taking UCSC Home 2011" button. Your application will be automatically re-submitted without having to fill out a new application. 

If you would like to volunteer but cannot participate in Taking UCSC Home, we have another opportunity: Spring Spotlight, April 14 – 23, 2011. Volunteers are needed for this event to greet tour guests and connect with admitted students and their families. You may also sign up for this event at admissions.ucsc.edu/volunteers. See https://admissions.sa.ucsc.edu/springSpotlight/gallery.cfm for photos from previous years.

All Student Ambassadors must be in good academic and judicial standing at UCSC, so you should be aware that we will verify this information.
