The Lion Ambassadors, “ordinary students with extraordinary pride,” are Penn State’s student alumni corps who communicate the University’s history, personality, and traditions to students, alumni and friends through tours and programming. Known for their trademark backwards walk, the Lion Ambassadors offer tours of campus to prospective and accepted students, as well as private special assignments. In addition to these tours, the Lion Ambassadors also host events and programs throughout the year to further their mission to the University: to foster the idea that involvement with Penn State is lifelong. These include Be a Part From the Start, S-Zone at home football games, and university-wide Senior Sendoff. Applications are available at the end of the fall semester.
