Who are the SOC Ambassadors?

The SOC Student Ambassadors are a select group of current undergraduate students in the School of Communication who work toward the recruitment of new students, assisting new students in the transition to AU and SOC, and creating community for current students. They support and promote SOC by serving on student panels to highlight the strengths of SOC, sitting in on prospective student meetings, and giving tours of SOC facilities to prospective students and families. SOC Ambassadors also plan and manage events and activities to help SOC students build community.

(1) To serve as a recruitment team, sharing personal experiences and insights with prospective SOC students;

(2) To serve as Peer Mentors for new SOC first year and transfer students, aiding in the successful transition to AU and SOC;
