Rice Student Ambassadors

President george bush speaking with a rice student ambassadorThe Rice Student Ambassador program was established in 1993 to provide a volunteer corps of Rice students with the skills and training to help execute special university functions and represent Rice at events both on campus and elsewhere. Over the years, the program has evolved and now in addition to fulfilling the program's original goals, Rice Student Ambassadors assist with visits to campus by international dignitaries and other VIPs as well as guests from the Institute of International Education. They also provide campus tours to schoolchildren and community organizations visiting Rice.

Rice Student Ambassadors are drawn from all residential colleges, academic disciplines and class years. The size of the Rice Ambassador corps is maintained at 60 students.
