Downtown Ambassadors is a student organization that provides undergraduates with organizational skills, professional connections, project/event management experience, marketing expertise, and the opportunity to make a positive impact at Wake Downtown.
We are looking for students from a wide variety of academic disciplines who are looking to sharpen their leadership skills and demonstrate their creativity. Though we are always in need of students involved in Wake Downtown’s core programs (Engineering, Biochemistry and Molecular Biology, and Medicinal Chemistry), we also welcome perspective from other majors (STEM or non-STEM) who are passionate about Wake’s presence in downtown Winston-Salem. The application to serve as an Ambassador will re-open in September of 2019.

“My favorite thing about Wake Downtown is the study space at the far end of the hall on the fourth floor where there are bar seats over looking the city. I like how removed it is from everything else, which makes it a good place to focus. The view of the fields and sculptures below also make it relaxing even while struggling with difficult work.”
“No doubt the ‘L Room’ on the 4th floor. It is solely an engineering space that really took shape over the summer. It used to be bare – no tables and no chairs. This summer the EGR faculty picked put new furniture, flooring, and paint based off of surveys that the current EGR sophomores took and the space is wonderful!! It has movable desks, chairs, and plenty of whiteboard workspace along with multiple TV stations that allow students to easily connect and share presentations with the class. “
“My favorite aspect about Wake Downtown is how the future leaders of bio-innovation are being educated in the historic Reynolds tobacco factory!”
“I love the location. Being surrounded by good restaurants, parks, and innovative businesses encourages me to learn and use the resources around me.”
