Student Engineering Ambassador Program

About

The Student Engineering Ambassador Program within the School of Engineering (SoE) is an opportunity for students who are dedicated to serving and representing Rutgers University. Our Student Engineering Ambassadors provide campus tours, sit on student panels and participate in public engagement events. The Engineering 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.

If you told me during my senior year of high school that in four years I would be graduating from Rutgers, I would have told you that you were crazy!

During my college application process, I barely applied to any schools in New Jersey and ended up at Clemson University in South Carolina. During my freshman year, while I was loving football season, I began to realize that being 12 hours from home was definitely not for me. When I began to...

As I sulked alone at home, the heartstrings tired, I wondered what would come from a relationship gone sour. Most people just fed me feel-good buzzwords about some hypothetical “growth”. That is until a close friend invited me to a photo shoot with him and a few other friends. I decided to go and have some fun, even if it was out of my element. A cool Autumn breeze filled the space between the buttons on the flannel I had bought just for the occasion. With pumpkins to the left and sunflower stalks bowing towards the sun...
