Soules College of Business
- Soules Ambassadors
The Soules Ambassadors are a group of highly motivated, business-oriented students focused on the betterment of the Soules College of Business through student outreach, the facilitation of communication between students and faculty, and representing the student body at professional events. Over the years we have met with pillars of national government, international business, and even members of the United Nations. In addition, we have created the student forum to increase the power of student voices and help faculty better understand what pitfalls consistently occur over the course of a student's degree.
If you are a hard working, professional individual who feels that they can represent the college and diligently help their fellow students, we are looking for new members. We only ask that you put forward the effort that you are capable of.
