ALAS Ambassadors are enthusiastic about sharing their experiences with others, and represent the College at recruitment, yield and outreach events. They develop their leadership and communication skills through these activities, as well as by hosting visitors to campus, leading informational sessions, communicating online, and providing tours.

Student ambassadors are chosen through a selective process, which includes an application and interview. The application is available in mid- to late-winter quarter, with interviews taking place in early spring quarter.
