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.
