Student Ambassador Program
Student Ambassadors are current Grand Valley State University students dedicated to sharing their college experiences with future Lakers. Their role is to volunteer throughout the year at various on-campus recruitment events hosted by the Admissions Office. This program strives to bring students together from various academic disciplines, clubs and organizations, and cultural backgrounds to provide a positive and honest image of Grand Valley State University to prospective students, families, alumni and friends of the University.
