    Falcon Ambassadors

    The Falcon Ambassadors Club, in collaboration with the Dean of Student’s office, works to develop the already established sense of community at Lackawanna through advanced leadership opportunities and communication of College policies. The Ambassadors facilitate tours for all incoming students, as well as build strong relationships with the surrounding Scranton area through continued community service initiatives. The organization is comprised of students that are involved in all aspects around campus who unite to serve as hardworking representatives for the Dean of Students Office.

Each Survival Pack costs $20, and proceeds benefit the Falcon Ambassadors Club!

    Tours for Prospective Students

    As a Falcon Ambassador, you will have access to training sessions on how to give tours of the school. It is a great way to get to know Lackawanna and an even better opportunity to share your story with future students! The training session and tours will work around your schedule for convenience.

    Student Life

    As a Falcon Ambassador, you and your fellow club members are responsible for deciding what you do and how YOU can make an impact here at Lackawanna College. You will work closely with the Student Life department to help decide what activities to bring to the students and then help promote those events and encourage participation. We are always looking for new ways to help enhance the college experience for resident students, as well as commuters. If you have strong leadership skills or would like to develop stronger leadership skills, join the Falcon Ambassadors and grow your skillset!
