President’s Ambassadors are students who are eager to learn new things, meet new people, and promote the mission of the University and the values of our Marianist heritage.


For more than 40 years, the President’s Ambassadors have been an integral part of the University’s heritage, where students of all academic and cultural backgrounds have graciously volunteered their time and personable attributes toward serving and promoting St. Mary’s University, leaving with valuable knowledge and experience to last a life time.

Come be a part of the time honored legacy.

As members, students continue a legacy of learning through stewardship, communication and participation, and are continuously exposed to unique and valuable service opportunities that are rewarding and fun.

For more information about the President’s Ambassadors, visit Gateway or contact Jessica Uhlig, Ed.D at juhlig@stmarytx.edu.
