Becoming a Diplomat
The Diplomats recruit the most committed and motivated business students each year. The organization targets Junior and Senior business students that have a passion for helping other business students and improving the Warrington community. A Diplomat is expected to generate new ideas, participate in various events, and serve as a resource to other students while gaining valuable leadership experiences through the organization.
Diplomats are selected through a competitive application process that consists of a written application, letters of recommendation, and a personal interview. Attending Warrington Diplomat events are a great way to meet current Diplomats and learn first-hand how the organization operates.
The Warrington Diplomat selection process is complete for the 2015-16 year. Please check back in February 2016 for application details on becoming a Warrington Diplomat.

Schedule a Tour
During the fall and spring, Warrington Diplomats give tours for prospective students and other guests.
Ace the Showcase
Each fall and spring, UF's Career Resource Center hosts Career Showcase, featuring over 300 employers hiring for full-time jobs and internships. To help prepare business students for this event, the Diplomats conduct Ace the Showcase during which they critique resumes, conduct mock interviews, and help students develop their one-minute career commercial. (Open to all business students.)
Each fall, the Diplomats invite professors from all six School of Business majors to provide students with essential information about each of the majors. Such information may include: coursework, career opportunities, internships specific to that major, minors that complement the major, and more. This event is targeted toward underclassmen that have yet to enter their major coursework.
Etiquette Made Easy
Each spring, the Diplomats bring in representatives from a consulting firm to educate business students on proper professional etiquette. Topics included in this event include: business dinners, on-the-job etiquette, company tailgates, and more. Best of all, students are given the opportunity to ask questions throughout the event, and nothing is off limits. This event is open to all business students.
Each year, the top 100 sophomore applicants are selected for the Florida Leadership Academy (FLA). To help prepare students for this competitive process, the Diplomats critique resumes, conduct mock interviews, and review statements of purpose for qualifying freshmen. Many Diplomats were members of FLA and can answer questions about the program.
Honors Thesis Luncheon
This invitation only event is for business students in their Junior year who qualify to write an honors thesis. During the lunch, a professor who has sponsored a student thesis will speak. Following this presentation, a panel of students, who have written a thesis, will discuss their experience and answer questions.
At the Internship Panel the Diplomats bring in recruiters from five companies to discuss their internship programs. UF students who have successfully completed the internships come and share their experiences. Some of the companies featured in the past were: Macy's Grooveshark, Altria, Nielsen, and Deloitte. (Open to all business students)
At Leadership Beyond Freshman Year, several Warrington student organizations are present to inform students about upcoming applications and opportunities to get involved as a leader in the Heavener School of Business.
