Who Are the FPF Ambassadors?

Ambassadors are former FPF students who serve as resources for prospective and current FPF students by answering questions, participating in events and workshops, and sharing their personal experiences in FPF.

Ask Us Questions!

FPF Ambassadors are here to help. In-person drop-in sessions take place during the fall semester in the lobby area on the second floor of Golden Bear Center (GBC). FPF Ambassadors can answer your questions, direct you to resources and share their personal experiences.  Drop-in hours will be Mondays 12-1pm and 3-4pm, and Fridays 12-1pm.

You may also ask questions of FPF Ambassadors by emailing If your question is for a specific Ambassador, please include their name. We look forward to hearing from you.
