The Rutgers School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS) Ambassador Program is a group of leaders who are dedicated to welcoming and introducing new and prospective students to university life. Their purpose is to interact with prospective students and their family/friends, share information about the various programs and student services available at our school, and build a community based on peer support and SEBS traditions.
Student Ambassadors are a selective group of current students, within the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences (SEBS), who volunteer and work under the direction of the Office of Academic Programs and share their time and experience with prospective students, parents and other university guests to facilitate and enhance student recruitment for Rutgers University. Ambassadors bring a deeper understanding of the university to prospective students, parents, counselors, and other visitors by sharing their experience and insider's perspective of being a student at Rutgers. There are both paid and volunteer opportunities available within the ambassador program. We welcome students to apply into all or any one of the opportunities outlined below.
Tour Guide Ambassadors

Tour Guides are responsible for representing the Office of Academic Programs, the School of Environmental and Biological Sciences, Rutgers University and its history, opportunities, attributes, benefits, and service when welcoming and hosting visitors.
