SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors
The SEAS Undergraduate Ambassadors program is a student leadership opportunity for rising juniors and seniors. The program supports the development of the SEAS community through Ambassadors’ participation in admissions events, community outreach activities, special programming, and peer mentoring within their respective majors. The Ambassadors are representatives of SEAS, their respective departments, and a variety of special populations such as transfer students, international students, and student athletes. Throughout their time serving as an ambassador, students gain invaluable leadership experience, communication skills, public speaking, and mentoring skills.

SEAS Ambassadors Co-President
Hello! I'm Saachi, and I'm a senior. I'm majoring in Systems Engineering and minoring in Computer Science and Public Health. I'm also a member of the GW chapter of WYSE (Women and Youth Supporting Each Other), where I, along with the other members of the org, mentor girls at a DC public school. I am a peer tutor with academic commons. Outside of school, I enjoy spending time with my dog and my friends and discovering cool music/places to eat.

Hi everyone! My name is Kate, and I am a senior Biomedical engineering major. I currently do research in Professor Murray Loew’s Medical Imaging and Analysis Laboratory, where I work on a project related to the use of thermal imaging to detect breast cancer. I am involved in many organizations on campus, including Tau Beta Pi, the Biomedical Engineering Society, and the Society of Women Engineers! Summer 2021 I will be interning at the National Institute of Health. In my free time you can find me either busting a move or settling in with a good book!
Hi! My name is Aisha and I am a sophomore Computer Science major, and am part of the University Honors Program. During spring and summer 2020, I interned at a small entrepreneurial start-up company as a machine learning software engineer where I managed their databases for data visualization systems. Now, I’m interested in information and technology management. I am currently a sister and the historian for the engineering sorority Alpha Omega Epsilon, and social media director for Spoon University. Outside of school, I enjoy photography, exploring and spending time with my friends, and watching a lot of Netflix and Disney!
Hi everyone! My name is Ryan Fisk. I'm a Senior Computer Science major and second year Ambassador! One of my favorite things about computer science is the seemingly endless ways you can create software to make people's lives better! This summer I’ve been working as a research fellow as part of the SUPER program. Our project, SunneeD, is a multi-tenant power management system that allows multiple clients to use the same physical device while still accurately tracking each clients’ individual power usage. When I'm not in class, you can find me running around the DC area. I love being outside and exploring the city. Please don't hesitate to reach out if you have any questions about Computer Science at GWU or what Ambassadors can do for you!
