Red & Black Society Info. Sessions


An invitation from Brian H. Lee ’13:

Need a job? Want the (potentially) highest paying job on campus? Come to an Info Session for the Red & Black Society! Red & Black Student Ambassadors connect alumni and parents with the University and solicit gifts on behalf of the Wesleyan Fund. Red and Black ambassadors are often the only contact alumni have with the school during the year. As such, it is a unique opportunity to bond with Wesleyan grads, young and old, and for them to connect with you.
This position allows students the opportunity to polish communication skills, post a coveted and marketable position on their resumes, and earn a recommendation from Wesleyan’s University Relations department. Ambassadors will also have the opportunity to be invited to special events on and off campus with trustees and prominent alumni.
Information sessions will be in PAC 001 on Monday, September 8 at 1:00 PM and Tuesday, September 9 at 6:00 PM.
Come with your resume if you’re ready to apply!

Dates: Monday, September 8th and Tuesday, September 9th
Times: 1:00pm on Monday and 6:00pm on Tuesday
Place: PAC 001
