Following the application and letter of recommendation form review, selected candidates are invited to participate in an interview, followed by a mock tour. Students selected to become Southern Ambassadors should immediately begin shadowing tours to become more familiar with their new position. New Southern Ambassadors will begin their training during the spring semester and be expected to start giving campus tours at the start of the fall semester. All Southern Ambassadors are also required to attend the fall training retreat at the beginning of the semester.

Southern Ambassadors provide weekday tours, group tours, and special event tours to prospective students and guests. Ambassadors also are required to assist with Eagle Previews, Accepted Students Day and other recruitment events throughout the year.  Monthly meetings are mandatory and help ambassadors to reenergize and stay up to date with GS and Statesboro Campus facts.
