Eagles Nest Outfitters (ENO), creators of nomadic outdoor and travel gear, is reliving the glory days of college by proudly announcing the re-launch of their ENO College Brand Ambassador Program.
Already a commonality on campuses nationwide, ENO looks to strengthen their grassroots approach to spreading hammock love in a university setting with their new college ambassador team. Originally launched in Jan. 2012, the company went back to basics with their current version of the program.
“Aside from creating the best hammocks on the market, ENO likes to have a good time, and we wanted our College Ambassador Program to reflect that,” said Amy Allison, Event Coordinator for ENO. “We’ve stripped the program down to the simplest, yet most effective, version to really put us on the university map.”
The new program, that is actively searching for ambassadors for the Spring ’15 semester, will begin in 10 universities for its first year with plans to expand in future semesters. Ambassadors are expected to be the official ENO presence on their campuses, throwing hammock parties and providing social media content among other responsibilities.
“We’re so excited to finally begin building a team of awesome college ambassadors,” Natalie DeRatt, ENO’s Marketing Coordinator said. “The passion we’ve seen coming from colleges and universities organically is terrific, so we can’t wait to harness that power.”
In return for students’ participation in the program – that runs semester to semester – ENO College Ambassadors will receive ENO products and swag items, in addition to learning real-world lessons in organization, time management, and communication. ENO will also provide all Ambassadors with recommendation letters for future employers.
