Connect with a Graduate Student Ambassador

If you are considering K-State for graduate studies, connecting with a Graduate Student Ambassador is a great way to learn about graduate student life at K-State. Ambassadors are a diverse and supportive group of current K-State graduate students available to share their experiences with prospective students and provide campus tours.

Meet our Graduate Student Ambassadors

Graduate Student Ambassadors represent a variety of academic disciplines. Most are studying at K-State's main campus in Manhattan, but a few ambassadors are in online degree programs or are located at K-State's Olathe campus. They come from large cities and small towns all around the world. Some are student leaders, parents, or veterans with diverse backgrounds and interests.
