Student ambassadors are the face of the College of Education. They represent the college at various events throughout the year, and they’re deeply willing to talk with prospective students. They can tell you about their real experiences at Purdue and within the College of Education.

– Meet the Ambassadors

Want to learn what campus life is really like? Come to campus and talk with an ambassador about their experiences in college. You might even get to attend class with one of them.
