Arts & Sciences Ambassadors

Arts & Sciences Ambassadors are dedicated and passionate students who serve as proud representatives of the College of Arts & Sciences.

Together, we provide the student angle on life at Cornell, help prospective students make the important decision of where to attend college, and then support them as they transition into life as an A&S student. We host lunches, information sessions, receptions, one-on-one meetings, and many more activities committed to answering all the questions that prospective students and parents may have about the college and the university as a whole. We also advise & support incoming students throughout the summer and into their first-year as they prepare to become Cornellians.

Meet Arts and Sciences Ambassadors

The group of A&S Ambassadors spotlighted here, along with their 70+ fellow ambassadors, come from a variety of backgrounds and study across the academic disciplines in A&S.

Ambassadors are available during events and by email at to share their Cornell experiences with you no matter where you live in the world, so that you may get a glimpse into the life of a Cornell student even if you don’t have the opportunity to visit campus.
