Student Ambassadors meet with prospective students interested in pursuing English as a degree, and they also help the department with prospective student outreach events. Our current Student Ambassadors thrive both within the English Department and the community, and they are here as a resource for anyone who wants to learn about their experiences as English students at the University of Iowa. If you are seeking insider-English-major information, they are the ones to ask!
To find out more information or schedule a visit with a Student Ambassador, contact Kate Torno. To apply to be an ambassador, please fill out the application form and put in Kate's mailbox in 310 EPB or deliver to her via email.
