Student Fellows

The School of Undergraduate Studies (UGS) Student Fellows are current and former UGS students who promote exploration, leadership, community, and engagement within UGS. Fellows are ambassadors who introduce resources to current and prospective UGS students, share their UGS story, participate in events, represent the school in communications projects, and more.

UGS Student Fellows are chosen on their ability to serve as a spokesperson for the school, model leadership, and self-reflect on their UGS experience. Fellows maintain a high level of engagement with UGS. Fellows must be available for a number of key school-wide events each semester.

Fellows will have the opportunity to hone leadership skills; build relationships with students, staff, and alumni; and give back to their initial college.
