College of Agriculture selects new student ambassadors

By Logan Britton

Kansas State University's College of Agriculture has selected 34 students to serve as ambassadors. The main responsibilities of agriculture ambassadors are to recruit prospective students and share their own K-State story. They will assist with more than 850 prospective student visits and represent the college and university at various events throughout the year.

Before being selected as a part of the 60-member ambassador organization, the students had to pass the College of Agriculture training program, an eight-week course teaching students about the college's departments and programs. After completion, candidates went through a very competitive application process. They submitted an application, interviewed with faculty and current ambassadors and presented over a scenario related to meeting with prospective students.
