UGA Griffin Ambassadors (Why Apply?)

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.

New members of the UGA Griffin Ambassadors are selected early in the fall and spring semesters.  Thus, students interested in applying should check the “Important Dates” and/or the “Spotlight on Campus News and Events” sections on the home page of the UGA Griffin Campus web site at the very start of the fall and spring semesters for an announcement that the online application is available. 

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

For more information, contact Faye Chatman  or Dr. Marianne Fortuna.

Applications for the UGA Griffin Ambassadors is currently closed. They will re-open at the beginning of next semester.
