Dean's Council of Students
What is an Ambassador?
The Potter College Dean’s Council of Students (DCS) is the ambassadorial group of Potter College of Arts & Letters at Western Kentucky University. DCS is comprised of 18-20 student volunteers majoring in one or more academic disciplines within Potter College. Students involved with the group are competitively selected annually and serve throughout the academic year. DCS members assist the College departments and faculty at open houses, college fairs, and Topper Orientation Programs (TOP). Additionally, DCS members provide campus and facilities tours, correspond with prospective majors, participate in College events, and serve as peer mentors to students who are exploratory within Potter College. Activities range from guiding scholars/professionals around campus during meetings or guest speaking engagements, giving tours for parents/prospective students, answering questions of students during Head for the Hill, recruitment events, and PCAL sponsored events.
