Student Ambassadors play a key role not only for Texas Exes, but as stewards of The University of Texas at Austin. They represent the alumni association and the university’s goals and values. They also promote support for students attending UT Austin.
Student Ambassadors bring campus-wide awareness to member benefits and resources that the Texas Exes offers—from connecting to the vast network of Longhorns through HookedIn and alumni mentorship opportunities to promoting Texas Exes membership perks, discounts, and resources, Student Ambassadors lead the charge in connecting alumni and students.
The group includes up to 10 current student volunteers and is designed to strengthen both student-to-student and student-to-alumni relationships. This group meets regularly to discuss and plan with Texas Exes staff and partners.
