CAHNRS Ambassadors with WSU Flag

The Ambassador Mission:

The CAHNRS Student Ambassadors is a student leadership organization that encourages students to pursue higher education and serves as a liaison between the college and the greater community.

  • Encourage higher education and promote WSU and CAHNRS to high school students
  • Increase visibility, awareness, and support of the College of Agricultural, Human, and Natural Resource Sciences
  • Participate in CAHNRS and WSU functions and welcome prospective students who visit the campus
  • Educate the public about opportunities and careers in agriculture, family and consumer sciences, design sciences, natural resource sciences, and related disciplines
  • Network with students and faculty in CAHNRS. Experience teamwork at its finest and develop valuable relationships

Speak With an Ambassador:

Whether you are a prospective student, current student, curious parent, or high school adviser, one of our Ambassadors can answer your questions. To this end, the Ambassadors strive to maintain a diverse membership that represents all areas of CAHNRS and to continuously expand their knowledge about WSU and higher education in general.

To get in touch with an Ambassador, simply send an e-mail to the facilitator describing the topic of your inquiries or interests. He or she will find and connect you with an Ambassador that is knowledgeable in that area. Learn about the 2017-2018 CAHNRS Ambassadors.

Request an Ambassador Visit:

The CAHNRS Ambassadors specialize in informing high school and junior high students about the benefits and different aspects of post-secondary education. We have presentations prepared for different audiences and venues. Our most common services include presenting to high school classes and hosting exhibits at career fairs. Below is a list of common topics covered during presentations.

  • Applying for college
  • Paying for college
  • Choosing a career path
  • Academics at the college level
  • College life apart from academia
  • Clubs and extracurricular activities
  • Information about WSU
  • Information about CAHNRS
  • Answering questions that students have

If your school is interested in having the Ambassadors visit, send an e-mail to the facilitator with the name of your school, preferred timeline of visit, and a description of the setting in which the presentation will take place.
