The Ambassadors are the principal student liaisons for prospective students and their parents visiting the UT campus. These students play an integral role by aiding in the recruitment of the best and brightest future Vols through the UT Campus Visit Program. The Ambassadors lead daily campus tours for visiting families and give a student’s perspective of what it’s like to be a true Volunteer at the University of Tennessee. For more information, please contact the Ambassadors, at ambassadors@utk.edu
