Admissions Ambassadors

Interested in learning more about the College of Environmental Design? 

We invite you to meet with a CED Admissions Ambassador — one of our current undergraduates who can talk with you about what life is like at CED and UC Berkeley.

We are happy to help you learn more about CED and can offer:

  • Presentations about CED
  • One-on-one conversations with ambassadors
  • Webinars, phone calls, and email exchanges with ambassador
  • Student panel discussions about the CED student experience

Fill out this form to be connected with a CED admissions ambassador or attend one of our upcoming information sessions:
