General Standards

Name Badge

Always wear your Presidential Ambassador name badge when you’re attending an event or working with a guest as a Presidential Ambassador. Your name badge should always be worn on the right side of your shirt (where a pocket would be). People shake with their right hands, so your name badge should be on the right side. Remember: “The rightside is the right side.”

Jewelry and Accessories

Jewelry and accessories worn when serving as a Presidential Ambassador should always be tasteful and neat. Please keep jewelry to a minimum (no more than 5 or 6 pieces) – less is often more when it comes to tasteful jewelry. Men’s hats/ball caps should not be worn in buildings.

Inappropriate Attire

Never represent another college or university with your clothing, accessories, key chains, etc.

Other examples of inappropriate attire when serving as a Presidential Ambassador include sweatpants, work-out clothes and pajamas, or anything that resembles sweatpants, work-out clothes or pajamas. Baggy or revealing clothes are never appropriate. Clothing with controversial images or words or messages that contradict standards set by the Berry College Viking Code may not be worn. Flip-flops/shower shoes are also never appropriate.
