Southern Ambassadors is a group of diverse and enthusiastic students who proudly represent Georgia Southern University to the public, both on and off campus. Southern Ambassadors serve as the face of the university to prospective students and guests. They represent the university in a variety of settings, including:

  • Campus tours for prospective students and guests
  • Special recruiting events
  • Assistance with various Alumni programs
  • High school college day programs and receptions

Examples of the events that Southern Ambassadors have assisted with in the past include: Open House, Discover Southern, Southern Scholars Showcase, Scholars’ Day, Transfer Visit Day, College Visit Days, Homecoming, Alumni banquets, receptions at the President’s home, and events at the President’s Skybox during home football games at Paulson Stadium.

Students will benefit in many ways – both personally and professionally – during their time as an ambassador. This includes:

  • Learning more about Georgia Southern University
  • Networking with student leaders and professionals from across campus
  • Attending team meetings that focus on professional development and training
  • Working in a team environment with a diverse group of individuals
  • Gaining experience in recruitment, college counseling, marketing, and public speaking
  • Gaining valuable presentation and critical thinking skills
