Representing majors across the College, the AddRan Ambassadors are a diverse group of students who serve as the face of AddRan College of Liberal Arts.
“Being a part of the AddRan College involves an in-depth exploration of past civilizations, present cultures, and progressive ideas that move forward our visions for the future. It provides methods to explore knowledge in a way that gives its students the tools to thrive in any career they choose to pursue.” - Lauren Wahlstrom, ‘24
Ambassadors work to foster a sense of community in the college, promote academically-oriented events and serve as student leaders to their peers.
AddRan Ambassadors have multiple opportunities to take part in professional and leadership development opportunities. They also assist the college by assisting events that promote AddRan and its mission.
“Economics exposes me to how the world is operating in an uncertain way. My degree in economics not only secures a high chance of employment but also guarantees all knowledge and skills that I have learned through classrooms and activities in AddRan Ambassadors.” – Lily Ta ‘23
The ideal AddRan Ambassador is passionate about the liberal arts and the mission of the college to give students the critical thinking, communication and leadership skills to succeed in any career. Ambassadors should be driven self-starters with excellent communication skills who are comfortable promoting AddRan to their peers, faculty and staff, parents and alumni.
