Student Ambassador Program


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.

Hi! My name is Katie Sun and I am a senior majoring in Materials Science Engineering at Rutgers University. When I first arrived at Rutgers, I was unfit and unmotivated to exercise. However, Rutgers offers its students a broad range of free fitness classes at various recreation centers across campuses. This includes yoga, Zumba, Pilates, Barree, Spinning, Grit, and RUFIT Strength, and much more -- all of which got me super involved in making a commitment to exercise during the week.

Like many other New Jersey natives, I always considered Rutgers a viable choice for my undergrad. It was a school that I passed by several times but wasn’t familiar with until after I  applied to colleges and started looking into various engineering programs. Once the acceptances started rolling in, it all became real and I started to explore where I should spend the next four years of my life. 

            In my search for the right college, I was looking for a place that I could call home. At Rutgers Admitted Students Open House, I instantly felt connected to the community....

My name is Akshay Malavade and I am currently a junior studying Industrial and Systems Engineering and pursuing a minor in Economics. My favorite class at Rutgers is interestingly enough not a course which was a part of my curriculum for ISE or Economics. The course was titled "The Psychophysiology of Stress Management: How to Do It and Why it Works." 

The professor who taught the course focused on utilizing various stress relieving techniques and its effects on the central nervous system. Many times we would practice these stress relieving techniques in class, which helped me...
