Welcome Week:
Presidents Welcome
Bison Ambassadors participate in the President's welcome by holding a sign for each of NDSU’s colleges so new students know where to gather. Bison Ambassadors then lead students to their designated college orientation, answer questions they have, and welcome them to NDSU.

Classroom Tours
Bison Ambassadors show new students around before classes begin. Students bring their class schedules, and Bison Ambassadors take them right to their classroom door so they are ready for their first day at NDSU.


Fall Retreat
Every year, Bison Ambassadors go on a fall retreat that serves as a bonding experience for the organization.


Homecoming

Bison Bidder’s Bowl
Bison Bidder’s Bowl has been part of NDSU’s Homecoming since 1982. It is sponsored by the NDSU Foundation and Alumni Association. The evening features a gourmet dinner, auctions, BA valet parking, and Heads or Tails.


Evening of Distinction
The Evening of Distinction takes place every fall during Homecoming Week. Hosted by the NDSU Foundation and Alumni Association, it aims to recognize individuals and organizations who have demonstrated extraordinary generosity in their gifts to NDSU over the years. Bison Ambassadors attend the event as student hosts seated among the honored guests. It is not only an excellent networking opportunity for Bison Ambassadors, but it also provides the chance to express gratitude and appreciation for generous contributions from alumni.


Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day
To recognize the thousands of staff, faculty, alumni, family, and friends who give to NDSU, Bison Ambassadors team up with the NDSU Foundation and Alumni Association on Student Engagement and Philanthropy Day. This CASE ASAP holiday  aims to increase student awareness of all the donations given by donors throughout the year.


Senior Day
Senior Day is an event held annually in the spring as a celebration of all of the seniors that are graduating. Bison Ambassadors team up with the NDSU Foundation and Alumni Association to put on a fun afternoon event that consists of food, games, door prizes and fun!


Apple Polisher
The Apple Polisher program honors NDSU faculty, and staff who have made an exceptional impact on a student’s college experience. A Bison Ambassador selects a deserving recipient to bring a special gift to them each day of Apple Polisher week. These awards are for individuals who have truly gone above and beyond to serve students.
