Student Ambassador Program

About

The Student Ambassador Program within the School of Engineering (SoE) is an opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing Rutgers University. Our Student Ambassadors provide campus tours, sit on student panels and participate in public engagement events. The Ambassadors serve as representatives for the school, sharing the School’s mission and vision, along with their personal experiences. They can be seen at various events like the SoE campus tours, community outreach events, Engineer’s Week and Rutgers Spring Open House.

Our Vision

To build and inspire a diverse community of future engineers that strives to exemplify the highest level of collaboration, intellectual curiosity, and social conscientiousness.

Our Mission

As advocates for the mission of the School of Engineering (SoE), we embody teamwork, diversity, integrity and service. By tapping into our experiences, we empower prospective students to find their niche within the Rutgers community, and by engaging in open dialogue between faculty and staff, we can develop and maintain transparency throughout SoE.

When one first comes to a different country that has a totally different culture, loneliness is something that they and everyone else probably experiences.

These common feelings are the bond that will help you build friendships...

When students and parents come to a Rutgers University School of Engineering tour, most are there for the traditional branches of engineering, such as mechanical or chemical. What most people don’t know about Rutgers prior to arriving is that we have a unique major within engineering: packaging.

I personally was not sure which engineering major I wanted to pursue during my first year at Rutgers. Although I like math and science, I also love art, literature, and (especially) music. I see myself as neither purely technical nor creative, but rather as a combination of the two. I’m so...

Growing up, whenever someone asked me, "What do you want to be when you grow up, Atmika?" my answer was always, "I don't know!" I never bothered rushing to find the answer to this question because I knew the right path would eventually find me. My favorite subject was math, but I also could never imagine a life without art. During high school, the only bridge between these two subjects that I was aware of was architecture, so I planned to take as many art and architecture classes as I could. At the time, engineering was not even in the picture -- I wanted to create and express myself, not...
