Bison Ambassadors

Established in 1993, the Bison Ambassadors are an outstanding group of NDSU students whose mission is to cultivate a culture of philanthropy through educating students, engaging alumni and supporters, and growing future leaders.

Meet the Bison Ambassadors

Mentored and overseen by the NDSU Foundation, Bison Ambassadors are representatives of NDSU on campus and beyond. They create strong bonds with alumni, spread the good word about NDSU, and represent Bison pride for life!

Its members work to connect alumni with students through a variety of activities and events, including NDSU Senior Day, Apple Polisher, Evening of Distinction, Bison Bidders Bowl, Homecoming, NDSU Giving Day, and more.

A Note from Our President

Since 1993, Bison Ambassadors (BAs) have been working to promote philanthropy and connect alumni to campus and student life. This mission to bridge the gap between alumni and current students continues with our current BAs who are passionate and dedicated to supporting both campus and alumni.

Through BA, members build upon their personal and professional skills while gaining connections that will help them throughout their education and into their career. Beyond this, members gain a community of students from all areas of campus who share a passion for philanthropy. This support is what makes being a BA so rewarding.

As a member of BA, I have gained confidence in my professional skills and have become more educated on NDSU as a whole. The friendships I have gained from this organization helped me find a home away from home at NDSU, and I would not be the person I am today without the support of BA. I’m excited to serve as president of BA and look forward to supporting both students and alumni throughout the NDSU community.
