Ag Ambassadors are a select group of students committed to enhancing the image and increasing public awareness of the College of Ag, Auburn University and Alabama agriculture and agribusiness. In addition to assisting with college- and university-sponsored events, Ag Ambassadors are involved in recruiting quality high school and junior college students to the College of Ag.

Students who are majoring in the College of Agriculture or in the College of Education’s agriscience education program and who have a recommended 3.0 GPA can apply to become an ambassador. Applicants must submit letters of recommendation and interest essays and, on request, must make a presentation on the college and Auburn and field questions from a panel of faculty and current ambassadors.
