Graduating Student Ambassador

Students in our College who volunteer in their sophomore or junior years to become student ambassadors are trained to help new and prospective students personalize their experiences in our College. Ambassadors learn leadership and communications skills, and train in all of our academic programs to provide expertise about what our College has to offer. They conduct tours, visit high schools, help with events for parents and students, and serve on an advisory committee. They also recruit new students and mentor them. Once ambassadors earn their degrees, we honor them as graduating student ambassadors. Our College thanks them for their hard work, dedication and sacrifice, as they have made a difference for our College and our students.

Heather Peterson recently graduated with her bachelor's degree in agricultural science with an emphasis in animal science and a minor in biology. She enjoys working with livestock and has a passion for Nubian and Boer goats, which she raises with her family in Nevada and California. Heather plans to continue her education here at the University in pursuit of a master’s degree in higher education administration. She worked alongside the College's Student Center and Dean’s Office as part of the College's Student Ambassador Program, where she found a passion for helping other likeminded individuals achieve their goals though higher education, specifically students in agriculture.
