Admissions Student Ambassadors Share Their Gator Pride

About Our Student Ambassadors

The Office of Admissions' student ambassadors assist in the promotion of the University of Florida to prospective students and their families. They collaborate with staff in developing student recruitment efforts, conduct informational presentations, campus explorations visits, panel discussions, phone-a-thons, online chat sessions, community service and regional, local and hometown high school visits across the nation. Ambassadors can develop leadership, communication, marketing and event planning skills as student recruiters.

Recruitment programs invite prospective applicants to visit campus, where they meet with admission officers, academic advisers and financial aid counselors to determine how UF's tremendous academic resources can help them achieve their academic dreams.
