Welcome to the Student Ambassador program at the Myers-Lawson School of Construction at Virginia Tech!

This select group of students seeks to positively impact our campus and community as a representative of our school. Whether at school events, in class, or replying to emails from prospective Hokies, these representatives aim to spread the word about their program of choice and the Myers-Lawson School of Construction. Get to know both our Building Construction and Construction Engineering and Management ambassadors below.

Student Ambassadors have the opportunity to represent the Myers-Lawson School and Virginia Tech at a variety of events and functions. Student Ambassadors are expected to serve as role models for other students and actively promote the Myers-Lawson School of Construction to prospective students, parents, and other members of the community. These students develop leadership skills and become active members of the Virginia Tech community.

Being a Student Ambassador is a rewarding and challenging experience that provides students with valuable skills and experiences that benefit them both personally and professionally.
