Department of Plant Biology Student Ambassadors
Plant Biology Student Ambassadors are undergraduate students majoring in Plant Biology who participate in a range of activities to promote the department. The students come from diverse backgrounds and are enrolled in different undergraduate options within the Plant Biology major. The Ambassadors are knowledgeable about programs in the department (e.g. options in the major, internships, research opportunities, scholarships, etc.) and about life as undergraduate students at the University of Georgia. Their main tasks are to gain leadership through facilitating interaction between Plant Biology students and faculty, to promote the department, and to aid in the recruitment of new students.
Apply for Summer/Fall 2020 - Spring 2021 Term (applications accepted starting in March 2020)
Meet Our Current Student Ambassadors
Harrison Bell - I study the cellular biology of corn with a focus on kinetochores in the Dawe lab using a variety of techniques and procedures. I hold a personal interest in plant morphology and totipotency and I hope to secure myself at least a Master's degree in Plant Biology, if not a Doctorate.
Addie Henderson - I am a 23 year old PBIO major/German minor at UGA, I am on a pre-health track, and I hope to attend medical school after graduation. I have always loved plants and finally decided to take the leap and declare it as my major last year! My area of emphasis is Plants and Microbes and I am incredibly interested in differing species interactions between fungi and flora and also between fungi and fauna. In my free time, I volunteer at different local pet rescues and tend to my many plant babies!

Our undergraduate students are in the process of organizing their own organization. Stay tuned!
