Thank you for your interest in becoming a GGC student ambassador. Student ambassadors serve as the first point of contact to thousands of individuals each year. The goal of the Student Ambassador Program is to empower you with the skills to excite and educate prospective students, families, school groups and the general public about programs, resources and student life at GGC.
