Diversity Student Ambassadors for Admissions
UofL's Office of Admissions Diversity Recruitment team established a diversity visit program to support diversity recruitment initiatives and promote post-secondary educational awareness. The program is comprised of 25-30 undergraduate students from various backgrounds. These DSAA's introduce high school students to their unique college experience.
Why I wanted to become a DSAA...
"I wanted to become a DSAA because it gave me the opportunity to explore more of campus and to learn what Louisville is about as an out-of-state student. It gave me a chance to become active on campus while helping prospective students learn about the day to day of a college student. I’m glad I did it, it’s been an overall wonderful experience!" - Leah Fogle
"Being a DSAA has strengthened my leadership and collaboration skills, connected me to new friends, and helped me network with people on campus and in the community. I get to work with amazing coworkers, share our campus with others, and be a role model to prospective students."- Jasmine Meadows
