UGA’s College of Environment and Design (CED) founded a Student Ambassador program, which began this fall.

The inaugural group of ambassadors is comprised of 12 diverse undergraduate students enrolled in the Landscape Architecture program who will be representing CED at events both on and off-campus for the academic year.

Rose Tahash, CED’s head of undergraduate student services, founded the program to help foster identity and raise awareness of the College’s academic programs, public service, and importance to the UGA and Athens communities. The 2013-2014 CED Student Ambassadors are: Catherine Arnold, Davin Dawson, Collette Fahey, Rikerrious Geter, Kale Hicks, Devon King, Kristi Korngold, Andrew Lundstrom, Kevin Pfeiffer, Quynh Pham, Chloe Weigle, and Laurah Young.

These students will assist with recruitment and College-related activities to enhance the public and instructional image of the College, its students, and its programs. Ambassadors serve as one of the front-line forces in representing CED and are therefore a pivotal part of our recruitment and public image team. This year, it is planned for student ambassadors to assist at CED lectures and gallery openings, prospective student visitation days, tailgates, academic and career fairs, and more! Students will even have the opportunity to connect with alumni and professionals on the road at national conferences and alumni gatherings. These events will be great opportunities for students to network, as well as hone their interpersonal and leadership skills.

Ambassadors are also advocates for other students at CED and represent CED within other UGA student groups and organizations. They strive to enhance awareness of CED and its programs throughout the campus, city, region, and state by building interest, pride, diversity, and enthusiasm for future generations of CED students.
