2024/2025 DLS Student Ambassadors Program application is now open!

The Division of Life Sciences Department is looking for dedicated undergraduates to become DLS Student Ambassadors. 

As a DLS Student Ambassador, you will play a crucial role in representing the DLS to prospective students, current students, and visitors. Your enthusiasm for the life sciences, coupled with your first-hand experience as a Bio, CBN, Exercise Science, Genetics, or MBB major, will help inspire and guide others on their academic journey. Here's are the different ways in which DLS Student Ambassador can participate:

  1. Open Houses and Special Events: Assist through sharing your insights about the life sciences program, the faculty, research opportunities, and the overall student experience. Engage with current and prospective students and their families, answering their questions, and showcasing the vibrant life sciences community.

  2. Panel Discussions and Workshops: Collaborate with other Student Ambassadors to develop and lead panel discussions, workshops, or quick Q&A sessions, offering valuable advice and perspectives to both new and continuing students.

  3. Social Media and Blogs: Contribute to the department's social media platforms and blogs, sharing your academic achievements, research experiences, and insights into life as a DLS major.

  4. Networking Opportunities: Gain access to networking events with faculty, researchers, and professionals in the life sciences field, enhancing your own understanding and career prospects.

  5. Assist with the DLS Research Reel contest – an exciting science communication initiative showcasing captivating short videos on life science research, crafted by our talented undergraduate researchers! 

This opportunity is not only a chance to further develop your communication, leadership, and interpersonal skills, but also a way to give back to the Division of Life Sciences community and leave a lasting impact. If you're excited about sharing your enthusiasm for Rutgers and the life sciences and want to help others make informed decisions about their academic path, we encourage you to apply.
