SOC Students showing their pride on SOC Spirit Day!

SOC Ambassadors

The SOC Ambassadors comprise a select group of current undergraduate students in the School of Communication (SOC) who support and promote the excellence of the school for both current and prospective students.

SOC Ambassadors work as a recruitment team, sharing personal experiences and insights with prospective students; serve as peer mentors for new first year and transfer students to aid in their successful transition to American University and the School of Communication; and build community by planning events and activities that bring together all students at the School of Communication at prospective student meetings, and give tours of our facilities to prospective students and families, among many other activities.

Recruitment for the SOC Ambassador team takes place once per year, during the fall semester. To apply during the next application cycle, please fill out the application and submit it along with your resume and the names of two references to the SOC Ambassadors office at with the subject line "SOC Ambassador Application."
