Student Ambassadors

Student Ambassadors act as the primary liaison between students (incoming and current) and the School of Neuroscience (SoN) faculty and staff. Ambassadors spread information from faculty and staff to the student community about social events and more. They also vocalize feedback from the student body to the faculty and staff.  They share their experiences as neuroscience students and assist in departmental recruitment events. 

Student ambassadors play a crucial role in supporting student engagement efforts. They represent the department at campus sponsored events, provide personal insight into campus life to prospective students, and help organize school wide events for neuroscience students.

Are you interested in becoming an ambassador? The advising team shares information and application materials to current students in late March.

Request to shadow a student ambassador

Are you a prospective student interested in learning more about what it’s like to be a student in the School of Neuroscience? You can meet with an ambassador and attend a class with them. Our ambassadors are happy to share their experiences and answer your questions.

Please fill out the Request Form at least 3 weeks prior to your proposed visit to campus. Shadowing is available when classes are in session during the fall and spring semesters (see Academic Calendar). An advisor will follow up with you in 3-5 business days about your visit.

Parents, family members, and friends are welcome to accompany prospective students to campus; however, classrooms are only able to accommodate one student with the ambassador.
