All interested students must complete an Elite Pirate Application to be eligible for the selection process. The selection process will include a personal interview with the selection committee. Following the selection weekend the selection committee will chose up to 15 students to pursue their chance of becoming an Elite Pirate. Selections will be based on their academics, leadership, and community service.
The selected students will serve as Leadership Ambassadors for the Division of Student Affairs, work directly with Greenville City Council and host the Annual Social Justice Symposium. Each Elite Pirate will get an Elite Pirate Blazer that they will wear at specified university events.
