Department of English Ambassadors are current majors who represent the department in various capacities. They engage with prospective and admitted students, plus current students. Our Ambassadors offer peer mentoring, and they aim to foster community and inclusivity in the Department of English. They are happy to meet with all students, but we especially encourage new first-year students, transfer students, campus change students, and major changers to talk with them.
