About the Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program

The Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program plays a critical role in developing the next generation of engaged Wolfpack alumni. The program engages the university community by fostering traditions and provides opportunities for students to get involved in promoting a vibrant campus culture. Our ambassadors are a talented and diverse group of student-leaders who are passionate about their school and committed to fostering a love for the university – on campus and beyond.

Our mission

The Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program instills leadership development while engaging the NC State community by fostering traditions. AASAP strives to provide opportunities for the active involvement of students and to promote a vibrant campus culture. Chosen through a closed-membership process, the ambassadors are a diverse group of 26 student-leaders who are passionate about their alma mater and committed to bridging the gap between students and alumni.

History

Founded in 2001, the program is funded by the NC State Alumni Association, the North Carolina State University License Plate Fund and private donations.

Today, the Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program is a diverse group of 26 NC State students with varying backgrounds, interests and areas of study, but who share the same enthusiasm for being part of the Wolfpack family. The program is affiliated with the Association of Student Advancement Programs, an international nonprofit organization of more than 300 student ambassadors, student alumni, student spirit and student foundation groups. The Alumni Association Student Ambassador Program serves as the official student ambassadors to the NC State Alumni Association and represents the Park Alumni Center at various functions throughout the year. Additionally, the program governs the Student Alumni Association, one of the largest student organizations on campus with more than 3,000 members.

Traditions
The Traditions Committee is responsible for fostering school spirit within the student body and maintaining the traditions that make NC State so near to alumni’s hearts. From energetic pep rallies to the endearing NC State Ring, our school culture is what makes the university such a special place. This committee not only works to ensure this heritage is passed on to incoming freshmen classes, they also oversee developments for The Brick, Mathews Medal and the NC State Ring Program to continually improve upon how we present these experiences to students across campus.
