I had a blast being an Ambassador – connecting with the students and getting them hyped for games!

— Anne Doe, Vikes Nation Ambassador


These dedicated students will be all around campus, living and breathing excellence demonstrated through active, healthy living in athletics and recreation. You’ll find them in the quad, promoting upcoming events or at games, amping up the crowd. Whether it’s basketball or the colour run, they strive to include our entire campus and unify the student body.

Be a Vikes Nation Ambassador

The UVic Athletics and Recreation Department is pleased to offer the Vikes Nation Ambassador Program. We are actively seeking students interested in being involved in a passionate, active community. For years this program has worked to engage students in school initiatives and promote the love for blue and gold on campus. As a Vikes Nation Ambassador, you will be responsible for promoting Vikes Nation and its benefits around the UVic campus. This means:

  • volunteering at Vikes Nation events
  • fostering a sense of campus community
  • working to live active, be healthy and thrive together

It is expected that ambassadors attend Vikes Nation events, engage on our social media channels, and work with specialized ambassador teams. As a Vikes Nation Ambassador, you will receive co-curricular experience, training, and the opportunity to work in a dynamic, exciting, and enjoyable environment.
