The FACS Ambassadors inspire students to engage the entire FACS family through leading by example and sharing their passion for FACS.

These students represent the College of Family and Consumer Sciences at a variety of events such as career days, recruiting activities, alumni functions, special visitation days, high school student activities, seminars and receptions. At all times, the student representatives act as true ambassadors of the College via their language, appearance and activities.
