Who are we?
A student-based, Science ambassadorship program that educates the external community about the Faculty of Science at York University.
The Student Ambassadors are passionate about their time at York, and are willing to share it with others. As ambassadors we attend recruitment events like the Ontario University Fair to help educate prospective students on the benefits of attending York, including but not limited to, the academic and social services as well as unique opportunities offered by York. We are there to provide parents and students with answers to pressing questions and give them a student’s perspective of life at York University.
The SSA team consists of students from second to fourth year (or higher) from the many degree programs within the Faculty of Science. Our Ambassadors are equipped with more than proficient communication skills and each with their own unique experiences. Combined with their drive to help others, the SSA team make up the ideal leaders to relay helpful information on behalf of the Faculty of Science to the non-York community.
Meet Our Student Ambassadors
"I became a student ambassador because… my experience at York has been very rewarding and fulfilling, and I want to use my platform as a student ambassador to help other prospective students experience the wonders at York. My transition from High School to University was made effortless through continuous support from upper years and staff, and I would like to share my experiences to help others transition effortlessly as well."
