The SDSU Ambassadors

WHAT WE DO

The SDSU Ambassadors are a highly selective group of students who are specially trained to be the official student representatives, tour guides and orientation leaders of San Diego State University. The SDSU Ambassadors provide campus tours to prospective students and their families. These one-hour long walking tours cover the central part of campus and include narration on the history and traditions of the university while highlighting academic programs, student support services, campus facilities and campus life. If you are interested in scheduling a tour for your family or a group, please visit our Campus Tours page for details and a schedule of campus tours.

In addition to campus tours, the Ambassadors work at New Student Orientation for both freshmen, transfer students and parents. In this role, they help new students and parents understand graduation requirements and the course registration process, ensuring a smooth transition to SDSU.

The SDSU Ambassadors also assist the university in carrying out a variety of events held year-round. These include: Explore SDSU, New Student and Family Convocation, Welcome Week, Aztec Nights, Homecoming, Family Weekend, athletic events, Commencement and other campus events and activities as needed. The SDSU Ambassadors’ involvement doesn’t stop on the SDSU campus, as they are involved in extensive community service work with local elementary schools and many not-for-profit organizations.

If your organization is planning an event or activity at which the SDSU Ambassadors may be of assistance in serving as host/hostesses and/or greeters, you can use our Event Request form or contact the Ambassadors in the Office of New Student and Parent Programs, (619) 594-6868 to request their participation. Please note, the SDSU Ambassadors do not provide logistical event support (set-up/take down) and traditionally work two hour shifts at maximum.
