UGA Griffin Ambassadors (Why Apply?)

Opportunities for student development are available on UGA's Griffin Campus.

In spring 2009, the UGA Griffin Ambassadors organization was formed. Undergraduate and graduate students are selected annually to serve as official hosts and goodwill ambassadors for campus and community events.

The Ambassadors welcome university and government officials to the Griffin Campus, assist incoming students at New Student Orientation, and talk with prospective students at a variety of campus events about the degree programs and opportunities available to them as UGA Griffin Campus students.

Ms. Faye Chatman, Program Director for the Franklin College of Arts and Sciences at the Griffin Campus; Dr. Marianne Fortuna, Lecturer in the Terry College of Business' J.M. Tull School of Accounting; and Ms. Kathleen Freeman, Program Coordinator for the College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences at UGA-Griffin, serve as the group's faculty advisors.
