CED Ambassadors assist with recruitment and activities to enhance the public and instructional image of the college, its students and its programs. They are:

  • articulate and effective public speakers
  • able and willing to present a professional appearance, behavior, and attitude at all times
  • able to fulfill the ambassador responsibilities without jeopardizing academic standing
  • familiar with the college and UGA and can effectively communicate on behalf of both
  • enthusiastic, friendly, outgoing, dedicated, responsible and bring diversity to the group
  • here to help. If you are thinking about the BLA and you’d like to talk to a current student about the major, your interests, or anything else, please don’t hesitate to contact them!


  • Undergraduate, full-time student enrolled in the Landscape Architecture major with a 3.0 minimum GPA

  • All students that meet the above requirements are encouraged to apply.
