TCVPA Ambassadors

The J.T.& Margaret Talkington College of Visual & Performing Arts Ambassadors is a select group of student volunteers. The goal of the Ambassadors is to provide information about the TTU College of Visual & Performing Arts to prospective students, their parents, alumni, and other interested parties, based upon their own perspective. Ambassadors attend recruiting events such as University Day, develop contacts with public and private schools, and assist with various events and public relations initiatives of the college.

For questions or inquiries please contact:  Aaron Chavarria or come by  room 203-4 Holden Hall or call 806.834.7083.
