Adobe Student Ambassadors

The Information Systems Academic Technology team is pleased to announce that Adobe has invited Wake Forest to participate in their Adobe Student Ambassador program!  As an Ambassador for Wake Forest, these students will increase awareness of Adobe CC and promote Adobe events and workshops through social media posts, club meetings/events, and campus outreach.


Selected students have the opportunity to:

  • Learn all there is to learn about Adobe Creative Cloud (Adobe CC)
  • Get up close and personal with Adobe pros and learn about what’s new with programs, contests, and features
  • Build their resume by gaining real-world experience
  • Connect with other ambassadors to share best practices and help each other succeed!
