College of Environment and Design establishes student ambassador program

The College of Environment and Design has established a student ambassador program. The inaugural group of ambassadors is comprised of 12 undergraduate students enrolled in the landscape architecture program who will be representing the college at events both on and off campus during the academic year.

The ambassadors were introduced to the rest of the college during the college’s annual Convocation, which welcomed the CED community back to Athens.

Rose Tahash, CED’s head of undergraduate student services, created 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.

The student ambassadors will assist with recruitment and college-related activities, including CED lectures, gallery openings, prospective student visitation days, tailgates, academic and career fairs and more.

Students will have the opportunity to connect with alumni and professionals at national conferences and alumni gatherings.

“Ambassadors also are advocates for other students at CED and represent the college within other UGA student groups and organizations,” Tahash said. “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.”
