Meet RLL's 2021-2022 College Ambassadors

CAS 2018-2019 College Ambassadors.

2018--2019 Ambassadors

 

In a university as large as UB, it's important that new students have the opportunity to make connections and build professional relationships from the moment they step on campus. With this in mind, every year the College of Arts and Sciences assembles a group of exceptional undergraduate students to serve as College Ambassadors.

The College Ambassadors are student volunteers who have been nominated by faculty and staff after demonstrating a commitment to academic excellence and community engagement. Ambassadors represent the College at a wide variety of events, serving as liaisons between the Dean’s Office and the student body. They are available to provide insight, advice, and information to current and prospective students, as well as their parents.

In return, the Ambassadors participate in unique professional development opportunities, including leadership training and networking events with faculty and alumni. Though potential Ambassadors must be nominated, interested students may speak with their departmental advisor to indicate their enthusiasm.
