Alumni Ambassadors

Alumni ambassadors are OCSA’s link to our growing and thriving alumni base. We look forward to staying in touch with our alumni as they go on to achieve great things both personally and professionally.

Our alumni ambassadors assist their alma mater in a variety of ways, including promotion of alumni events, identifying fellow alumni for “Where Are They Now” profiles, identifying fellow alumni or participating in mentoring opportunities with the current student body, planning alumni gatherings, helping to secure auction ideas for the Annual Gala, encouraging participation in ENCORE!, and most importantly, sharing the exciting OCSA happenings with their peers.

If you are interested in becoming an Alumni Ambassador, please contact Elizabeth Ton at elizabeth.ton@ocsarts.net.

There is no limit to the number of Alumni Ambassadors per class year.
