Agronomy Ambassadors are a group of students selected to represent the Purdue Agronomy department. They meet with and give tours to guests and prospective students. Ambassadors also represent the department at various events. Ambassadors are selected in the spring semester.
The Purdue Agronomy Ambassadors are current students sharing the day in a life of a Purdue Agronomy or Natural Resources and Environmental Science student.
