The Ag Ambassadors are a highly select group of young men and women dedicated to enhancing the image of Alabama agriculture, the College of Agriculture, the Alabama Agricultural Experiment Station, the Alabama Cooperative Extension System and Auburn University. The Ag Ambassadors were created in 1983 to assist with college- or university-sponsored events. The Ambassadors are available to speak on topics related to science, agriculture and natural resources to school assemblies, agriculture-oriented groups, business groups, banquets or similar events. All Ambassadors are majoring in the College of Agriculture, in agriscience technology education in the College of Education, or in other closely related fields.
The Ag Ambassadors at Auburn University are students committed to representing the College of Agriculture, Auburn University, and the industry of agriculture. They strive to develop the public’s awareness of the College of Agriculture and recruit students to join the Auburn family.
Students interested in becoming an Ag Ambassador, must have been at Auburn University at least one semester before annual Spring application and have a 3.0 recommended, minimum 2.75, Auburn GPA. Applications are usually emailed to students in the spring; however, any interested students can inquire about applications.
As part of the selection process, students must submit the Ag Ambassador application, which includes letters of recommendation as well as student background and interest essay. Selected applicants will then present a 5-10 minute presentation on the College of Agriculture, Auburn University, and the Alabama Extension System followed by a question and answer session before a panel of faculty and ambassadors.
If selected, Ag Ambassadors must attend all meetings and represent the College of Agriculture at War Eagle Days, TALONS Days, Ag Roundup, College Tailgates and other related events. For more information contact an Ag Ambassador advisor: Luxin Wang or John Beasley.
