Student Ambassador Program

Student Ambassadors are student volunteers dedicated to sharing their college experiences with future Lakers. As current Grand Valley State University students, ambassadors will assist 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.
