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.

For more information, contact Ashlyn Ruff, Ambassador Advisor, at ashruff@purdue.edu.
