CVPA Ambassadors



The College of Visual and Performing Arts Ambassadors are an elite group of selected students, who represent the college at events and work to promote the arts. CVPA Ambassadors are campus leaders who act as liaisons communicating the talents within the college to the rest of campus and to potential new students. They strive to advocate for the College of Visual and Performing Arts, Radford University, and the importance of an education in the arts.
