The Ag Comm student ambassadors are leaders dedicated to serving and representing the Agricultural Communications Program. They serve as “go-to” individuals for prospective students who would like to know more about the Program, visit the campus, search for referrals, and experience student life. In a nutshell, Ag Comm ambassadors assist prospective students in their college exploration process. They foster a network of peer support where students and prospective students get information on many aspects of student life.

If you have questions, ask any of our ambassadors!
