The mission of FACS Student Ambassadors is to represent our fellow students, facilitate relationships, and impact Athens and the UGA community through intentional service.

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.

Ambassadors Attend

  • An ambassador training retreat held on a Saturday in April
  • The College of Family and Consumer Sciences leadership retreat held on a weekend during the fall semester
  • Celebrating Excellence Awards Luncheon in October
  • FACS Week events in October
  • Monthly meetings throughout the year
  • Assist with high school tour groups
  • Meet with prospective students and their families
