Exploratory Studies Ambassadors

The Exploratory Studies Ambassadors are a select group of students who are dedicated to the positive promotion of the Exploratory Studies Program and Purdue University.  The group is comprised of current and former Exploratory students who wish to share their experiences with prospective Purdue students at orientation and admissions events throughout the year. Ambassadors have the vital role of communicating their knowledge of what it is like to be a beginning student without a major.  The program allows talented Exploratory students to meet, interact, and network with future Boilermakers, their families, and fellow peers.

Exploratory Studies Ambassadors are selected through an application/interview process conducted each fall semester. For more information, download the brochure or contact Ashlyn Shaffer, Ambassador Advisor, at (765) 496-2299. 

Exploratory Studies Ambassador Application (Word) - Available each fall semester.

 "Every part of Ambassadors makes it worth it. The other ambassadors, the advisors, the events, and the people we help make every ambassador event a blast.” – Madi Herman


"Being an ambassador has been a wonderful experience. I've been able to make great friends, expand my social and professional networks, get comfortable with public speaking, and meet tons of awesome people. The time commitment is minimal, but the experience is priceless!"  – Brandon Rose
