Formed in 1992, CALS Ambassadors are a group of students passionate about the College of Agricultural & Life Sciences and UW-Madison. With majors spanning the breadth of CALS, we seek to help prospective students and their families learn more about the opportunities associated with an education at UW.

Throughout each academic school year and summer, you will find ambassadors representing the college at college fairs and industry events, hosting tours on campus, interacting with alumni and more. The CALS Ambassadors are funded through a grant from the non-profit Wisconsin Agricultural and Life Sciences Alumni Association, the college’s very own alumni organization.

The ambassadors are always excited to share their knowledge about CALS and student experience at UW. Feel free to contact us at for more information about CALS.
