Student Ambassadors are comprised of professionally motivated student leaders at OMED, specifically Challenge Counselors and Edge Leaders. These ambassadors engage students by serving as strong advocates for OMED and serve as professional representatives sharing their experience and enthusiasm with a variety of constituents, including current and prospective students and their families, faculty, staff, alumni, and strategic partners and supporters.
Student Ambassadors also serve as advisors to the OMED staff by providing vital information regarding student organizations and various other departments on campus.
Student Ambassadors will be selected through an application process based on leadership qualities, communication skills, knowledge and participation in OMED programs, and unlimited enthusiasm for Georgia Tech. An interview will be conducted in addition to the application process to ensure selection of the best candidates.
