ambassadorsWhat is the College of Engineering Student Ambassador program?

The College of Engineering (COE) Student Ambassador program is a team of undergraduate engineering students who represent the College in outreach and recruitment initiatives. They primarily work with prospective engineering students and their families, but also occasionally engage with COE alumni and industry partners. Simply put, the Ambassadors are positive role models of what it means to be an OSU engineering student! 

What does a COE Student Ambassador do?

The Ambassadors take part in a variety of initiatives, such as giving College tours to prospective students and College guests, visiting high schools to encourage students to pursue engineering, supporting College of Engineering-sponsored events, assisting with new student and transfer orientation sessions, and much more! Ambassadors also have the opportunity to work in specialized roles with the Leadership Academy, Center for Diversity & Inclusion, Career Development Office, and the Office of Student Services. The COE Student Ambassador role is a paid student position, and Ambassadors are expected to treat their roles as real jobs.

How do I become an Ambassador?

The COE Student Ambassador position is competitive. Students must apply and interview to be considered for this role, and fulfill/maintain certain specialized requirements. COE Student Ambassadors are also required to be active members of the College of Engineering Leadership Academy.

Applications for this year have already closed. COE Ambassadors applications generally open in winter term, and we interview, select, and train new ambassadors during spring term. Check back for more information for the next applicaiton cycle next year!
