The Ambassadors are a group of students chosen to represent ABAC at a variety of functions. Ambassadors are selected at the beginning of each fall semester for their enthusiasm, premier leadership ability, and exceptional communication skills. The ABAC Ambassadors provide official campus tours, host visiting dignitaries, and assist with on-campus functions. Applications are available online.
