Presidential Ambassadors

The Presidential Ambassadors Program provides opportunities for a select group of students chosen for their enthusiasm, academic excellence, and college engagement to represent and promote Randolph College in partnership with the Office of the President.

These students host important college guests and represent the College at prestigious campus and community events.
