Welcome to the Science Ambassadors!

Congratulations on wanting to become an IUPUI School of Science, Science Ambassador! We help promote the school to prospective students all over the state, while still helping at home by volunteering for the SOS's various events throughout the school year. Below you will find a quick summary of what we do for the school, and how the school can give back to us. While the information below is helpful, the best way to get involved is by participating in one of our Meet & Greets on Fridays from 12:00-1:00p.m. Get the inside details on how to get a Science Ambassador T-shirt, all of the research opportunities, and leadership skills that can only be found here!

Why join?

Moving into higher education can be a difficult process for some. Picking the right college, learning about scholarships, figuring out your place in the school. Let us help you find your place in the School of Science, by joining us in sharing our experiences to prospective students. Along the way you help people find out they can "do Science" just like everyone else. Here are some other skills to point out:

  • Meet new people
  • Contribute to the School's growth and improvement through strategic recruitment efforts--A more robust and qualified student body improves the value of your degree!
  • Develop personal leadership and communication skills 
  • Gain service experience for resume or service hours required for scholarships 
  • Networking (very active volunteers will be considered a priority and can contact Rebecca to be a reference for jobs, internships, med-school, etc.)!
