What is a UAlberta Ambassador?

UAlberta Ambassadors are student volunteers who help show past, present, and future members of the UAlberta community why our institution is a great place to be. Approximately 80 UAlberta students represent our university in a variety of ways:

  • Lead campus tours and on-campus experiences for prospective students and their families, as well as teachers, counsellors, alumni and the general public through the University of Alberta’s Campus Visit Program.
  • Provide service triage and welcome guests to Student Connect.
  • Represent the University of Alberta at various events on and off-campus, such as Alumni Weekend, Open House, Changing Lives Brunch, and more!
