What is the Student Ambassador Organization?
The Student Ambassador Organization (SAO) is a group of individuals that features the very best of what USI has to offer. Although each member of the SAO is unique regarding personality, interests and background, all members share one common thread - pride and enthusiasm for the University of Southern Indiana.
Student Ambassadors serve as University representatives, recruiters, hosts, tour guides, and leaders.

The goal of the SAO is to promote USI to prospective students, current students and alumni.
