Our student ambassadors embody the values that set apart the Kornberg School of Dentistry from the rest.
Ambassadors are an integral part of recruitment efforts, providing a peer-to-peer perspective for students interested in attending Kornberg. They offer campus tours and set up one-on-one meetings and luncheons for prospective students. They also attend recruitment events, speak on panels at open houses and are available to answer any questions you may have at orientation.
Meet your student ambassadors.
